Children's Books About the Top 10 Presidents According to Historians

Happy Presidents' Day! 

According to the Independent Journal Review, C-SPAN conducted a survey to rank our former presidents in different categories, such as Crisis Leadership, Administrative Skills, Moral Authority, and Economic Management. C-SPAN interviewed 91 presidential historians for this survey. (Note that surveys about presidents change on a yearly basis depending on historians' new findings and revisions.) 

I found children's books to match to the top ten presidents ranked in the survey.
