So You Want to Be President? Revised Ed.by Judith St. George and David Small
Synopses & Reviews
This new version of the Caldecott-winning classic by illustrator David Small and author Judith St. George is updated with current facts and new illustrations to include our forty-second president, George W. Bush. There are now three Georges in the catalog of presidential names, a Bush alongside the presidential family tree, and a new face on the endpaper portraiture.
Hilariously illustrated by Small, this celebration by St. George shows us the foibles, quirks and humanity of forty-two men who have risen to one of the most powerful positions in the world. Perfect for this election year--and every year!
So You Want to Be President meets The Far Side!
Just in time for the 2012 election, Michael Townsend presents his comic book guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and maybe a few things you didn't!) about the President of the United States. It's full of insanely weird facts about our leaders (Did you know that President Coolidge had a pet pygmy hippo named Billy?), as well as the history and powers of the presidency, day-to-day life, and pros and cons of the job. Even the most mundane of facts become hilarious in this brilliantly cheeky guide to our nation's MVP.
A brand-new revised and updated edition, just in time for the 2012 election cycle!
This Caldecott Awardwinning picture book is now revised and updated to include information about our nation's 44th president, Barack Obama. A great fit for Presidents' Day and the 2012 election cycle, this book is perfect for parents, teachers, and librarians who want to talk presidents without talking politics.
