The values of integrity and courage to stand up for what is right are celebrated in this PragerU Kids biographical book about Chester A. Arthur, the 21st President of the United States. During a time of corruption when politicians appointed friends to lucrative positions in the government, President Arthur signed a major law in 1883 to end preferential treatment and ensure that federal workers be hired based on merit.

Created for children in 3rd through 5th grade, PragerU’s beautifully illustrated biographical books are packed with facts and fun to teach elementary students about important figures often mischaracterized or forgotten in today’s classrooms.
