Witnessed through the eyes of a young boy, a captivating story beautifully evokes John F. Kennedy's return to his ancestral home.

When the beloved president visited Ireland in 1963, he described it as the best four days of his life. And for a generation of Irish people, it was a trip they never forgot. This warmly told, bighearted picture book captures the fevered excitement in the buildup to the president's visit, all seen through the eyes of a young boy named Patrick who wants to know more than anything what it would feel like to shake the president's hand. Rooted in historical fact and marking the centennial of John F. Kennedy's birth, this feast of a book offers readers a pure and personal take on JFK's visit to County Wexford, Ireland. Included in the back matter is a time line that helps amplify the story.
