9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Bogart on March 30, 2010
So You Want to Be President? is another absolutely spectacular release in the Scholastic Storybook Treasures series of DVDs which gather groups of animated children's book adaptations together on disc. This topically focused collection focuses upon American politics: the history of her past presidents, a modern look at Capitol Hill, a little girl's presidential aspirations, and one woman's journey towards voting equality.

"So You Want to be President" (26 minutes) is based upon the heavily awarded and well-loved children's picture book of the same title by Judith St. George. The playful use of illustrator David Small's caricatures, kid-friendly facts about past presidents, and a heaping dose of humor along with presidential trivia make this animated version an even bigger hit (if possible) than the book! Based on the 2000 edition of this title (there is an updated 2004 picture book available), this short film ends with George W. Bush's controversial election (Election 2000).

"My Senator and Me: A Dog's-Eye View of Washington, D.C." (26 minutes) is written Senator Edward M. Kennedy and follows him through his daily rounds through the eyes of his loyal and affable Portuguese water dog. Splash's playful perspective makes learning about the process of approving bills easy to understand and follow for young children.

"Madam President" (9 minutes and my six-year-old's favorite) follows a young girl's slightly megalomaniac aspirations to the presidency while "I Can Do That! Esther Morris Gets Women the Vote" (16 minutes) follows the true-life story of Esther Morris and her journey towards political equality for women the state of Wyoming.
