I was moved when I got to the next to the last page: when the children who'd laughed at Grace for thinking she could run for president, finally accorded her respect and admiration. I looked down at my smiling, cinnamon-faced child with her curly, happy braids, and my eyes filled with tears. The very last page...well, you'll just have to see it. It was descriptive of everything you'd want for your child. The realization that, finally, my daughter could hope for such a life, flooded me with emotion.
The next morning, we watched Michelle Obama hold a velvet-covered Bible for her husband. After he uttered "So help me, God," followed by the rousing cheers of millions, my daughter turned to me and said, "So, do we have a black girl president now?"
So, maybe she was a little confused. But all I could think was "Someday, Sugar."
This clever book does an excellent job in introducing to children an intuitive lesson in how the Electoral College system operates for electing the U.S. president, and how votes are allocated across states. This lesson is wrapped up in an exciting plotline, a spunky lead character, and bold, engaging illustrations. Grace for President is a valuable addition to any collection of children's books that rank highly in both content and appeal.
