Before this book I didn't know much about James Madison. He took good care of his mom, who lived to 98. He had a weak voice, but still managed to give speeches. He was great friends with Thomas Jefferson. He was part of the Constitution Convention and was diligent in his work. He had a reputation of being a bachelor until he proposed to a very young lady. The age difference today would be frowned upon. Thankfully she was immature and turned down his proposal after stringing him along. Later he would propose to the widow Dolley Madison.
James Madison's greatest error was mollycoddling his step-son "Precious Payne" in the backside who lived life irresponsibly and in great debt.
After Madison's death Dolley had to sell their home Montpelier due to Payne's mismanagement. ( )

Sometimes, heroes are large as well as larger than life. Madison was diminutive and would have been an easy person to miss in a crowded room. Throughout their school years, students learn about the origins of the United States and how its government evolved, but individuals are often omitted from the story. Fritz's biography of the "Father of the Constitution" provides penetrating insights into the experiences and ideas that Madison, who, despite his bantam stature was an intellectual giant, and hence the book's title. Allowing students to discover who the Founders were as people might also underscore the point that even people who are unremarkable on the surface are capable of great things.

This book is an inspiration for all the children it teaches them that no matter how tall or strong you are you can have an impact on the world if you have confidence in yourself. James madison show passion and devoted the rest of his hardworking life to try to make the constitution work for The united States. ( )

Definitely a book to teach history. Sometimes in middle school or high school kids have to do reports on presidents or something from history and I think this would be a good recommendation. They will learn many things about Mr. Madison and other historical people and events. And teaches many things about Government
