A Clever Little Boy

Arden & Miriam

He really is a clever little boy……………….

 Arden Hayes is a 5-year-old boy from Southern California in the United States. He is known for his knowledge of the U.S. presidents, reciting Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address by heart, and being able to identify the countries of the world and name the capitals of each.[1]

His interest in American presidents was sparked by Arden’s learning that he shares a birthday with Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Both were born on January 30.

On May 4, 2013, Arden was featured in an article and video in the Los Angeles Times.[2][3] He also received a lot of publicity in newspapers in England and the United States and on various blogs.[4] Soon after, Arden was asked to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on July 2, 2013 to demonstrate his knowledge regarding U.S. presidents.[5] On November 5, 2013, Arden again appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and displayed his knowledge of the nations of the world and their capitals.
