I think it's also a good introduction t I received a copy of this book through Goodreads' First Reads, and I enjoyed it. I think it's also a good introduction to biography in general. There were some writing quirks that rather bothered me, but then I am extremely picky about that, and children for whom it is intended would not notice.

I received it as a First Reads giveaway on Goodreads. Despite a couple of minor grammatical errors, I would recommend this book to pre-teens and teens in order to gain a better understanding of the man from Plains and his role in our nation's history.

I learned a lot about Jimmy Carter by reading this book. I always admired him, but I do so more now after reading this account. It is a worthy read. He is a man that will always try to do the best he can for everyone. He truly believes that we all are created equal. I am glad that I won this free book from Goodreads First Reads giveaway. It didn't take me long to read the book and I got a lot out of it. How come we don't have any more good men like Mr. Thank you Goodreads and Elizabeth Raum for writing the book. Feb 03, Kathy Russo rated it really liked it. The book itself was well written and the information progressed in a very logical and ordered way.
The majority of the biography has a focus on the subject of creating and maintaining peace, and how Carter's religious beliefs resonated and influenced some of his political decisions during his time in office.
A copy of the book was provided via Goodreads Firstreads in return for an honest review. Apr 16, Kathleen Huben rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads , biography. A book won on first-reads. Gift of Peace is an excellent biography of Jimmy Carter, written at the middle school level. I found it very enjoyable and intersting, covering a lot of things I didn't know about Carter and his family.
I would inform readers that this is published by a Christian press and so there is some discussion of the importance of his religious beliefs to his life. Considering that former president Carter was always open about his faith and beliefs, I don't think he'd object. Apr 09, Adele rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , christian-ish , childrens , memoir-biography , first-reads. When I was a kid. My elementary school has a set of biography books. There was at least a hundred books. They were written for kids, to introduce them to famous people, role models and heros.
My favorite was Walt Disney. I always thought I should find books like those for my kids. Books that are easy to read. Books that will introduce them to many different people from different times. This is one of those kinds of books. One that I will keep for when they are older to introduce them to Jimmy Carter. Jun 22, Steve rated it really liked it Shelves: christian , first-reads , ya.

Although it's only a small part of this readable Jimmy Carter biography, I especially liked the practical details of how Jimmy Carter campaigned for local office early in his career. It gives anyone who reads this book a realistic sense of how to campaign for election, and helps the reader realize that anyone can run for office in America. Jun 24, Katrina rated it it was ok Shelves: first-reads-win. Good Reads Win: I thought I might be interested in this but it just wasn't for me. It was an interesting read. I think because it was aimed at a younger audience I couldn't get into it.
If you were more of a middle school or younger age then yeah you would be able to get into it. But for an older audience it's sort of a no not enough details or getting to the gritty and dirty. Jun 19, Liz Whittaker rated it it was amazing.

- Gift of Peace: The Jimmy Carter Story by Elizabeth Raum (ebook).
The writer had the 3rd or 4th grade student in mind when writing this book. I found it to be an excellent history lesson for children. It told the story of Jimmy Carter who was a mild and caring president of the United States. It also touched on President Carter's belief in his religion, his belief in human rights, and his belief in peace.
I highly recommend this book to younger students. Jun 23, Carolyn rated it really liked it. I won this book through goodreads. I learned things I did not know and was reminded of things I had forgotten about this amazing man. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about Mr. Carter and how he thought during his campaigning and presidency and later. This would be a great tool for a junior high or high school writing a report on a political figure.
Jun 25, Karen rated it liked it. I received this book through one of the giveaways. I registered for it not realizing that it was for Young Adult readers. The book was an easy read and gave insight into how President Carter's upbringing influenced his decision making while in the White House. Jun 21, Shannon rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads. I love to read biographies to see the back stories on people we think we "know"!
I find it fascinating how they were raised, etc. I'm excited about the christian aspects of this book! Trying to raise children with a strong christian background and morals is quite a job so I'm looking forward to this and to share with my children since it is geared towards kids!! Jun 24, Amber rated it liked it Shelves: goodreads-wins. I received this book as a goodreads first reads giveaway and like alot of reviewers I noticed, I did not realize this was going to be a middle school book. However I really liked the book and enjoyed learning a bit about our 39th president.
I would recommend this to people who are interested in learning about him without having to read a large biography. Apr 02, Valerie Kite added it Recommends it for: Everyone.
