Worst of Friends

Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, founders of the United States of America, were best friends.  They were quite opposite, in size, shape and temperament, but they really liked each other.

They worked together to create the United States of America.  They worked together to find a solution to paying the bills of their new country.  They traveled to Europe together to enlist the help of other countries.

Then, something happened.

They disagreed.  They disagreed on how their new country should be run.   They both ran for president.  They both were elected president, at different times.  But they had quit talking to each other.  In fact, they talked badly about each other to other people.

The Worst of Friends by Suzanne Tripp Jurmain tells the story of Tom and John’s unlikely friendship, falling out, and reconciliation – all in terms children will understand, appreciate and enjoy.
