DCMP Highlights: Getting to Know the U.S. Presidents

The folks at Getting To Know Inc. take their name pretty seriously - although they're lighthearted about it. Their short animated videos do a lot of good helping kids get to know some quite complex people and concepts. You'll probably be hearing about more Getting To Know series in the weeks to come, because they're fast becoming favourites on the DCMP roster (and with me!) this year. Our first series with them focuses on U.S. Presidents, making lofty historical figures relatable and sometimes funny. The sample below introduces Abraham Lincoln as he starts telling the story of his life.
