This book is ridiculous. Democrats are no more "moral" than Republicans are. Anyone who tries to use the word "moral" in the context of a political party is a fool. This book oversimplifies the problems our country is facing today much like "Help Mom There Are Liberals Under My Bed!" does. While Katherine DeBrecht's right-wing hogwash is essentially a more polite form of Ann Coulter-esque outrage, this book is class warfare and militant political correctness repackaged for grade schoolers (it will change the way they think about squirrels, at least).

One reviewer wrote that "if good moral values is indoctrination...". This reviewer missed something. Frankly,some of the books good moral values are not so good. Or Moral. And yes, it is indoctrination. "Democrats make sure they share their toys, just like mommy does". Clearly a subtle remark about wealth redistribution. Also, the comments from another reviewer were right on about no father figure in the book. Clearly, Democrats don't believe a father is required. Even the author himself has a "Partner", instead of a wife. Hey, here's a novel idea: How about NO books about politics for our kids. How about letting them just be kids.

The other reviewers took this little book way too seriously. Since I suffer from "Bush Derangement Syndrome", I thought it was very funny. It's just a joke, which I loved sending to my adult childeren. I do agree with the reviewers who stated that it is not for children. It's for adults like me who are appalled with the way the country is being run.

These other reviewers are so concerned about "indoctrinating" - it's no worse than "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!", which is the Republican equivalent - but read the reviews for it - no one's concerned for the children in any of those reviews. There's nothing wrong with the book - if these people had read it, it just talks about good moral values - and equates them with the Democrats. If good morals, Republican or Democrat, is "indoctrinating" children, then perhaps that's the problem with today's youth.

My guess is that the reviewers just heard Rush Limbaugh bad mouth the book and they rushed to Amazon to review it.

This book is political propaganda aimed at children. It makes blanket statements that imply ALL Democrats have the same righteous views, while diplaying pictures with subtile imlications that Republicans (elephant) are the bad guy. The Democrat party and the Republican party are neither that admirable, nor are they completely villainous.

One sided political books like this and the conservative book "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!" by Katharine DeBrecht and Jim Hummel should be kept away from children. Teach them right and wrong without political spin. That way when they grow up they can see things with out a jaded view and can support whomever is doing good, regardless of political affiliation.

Liberals don't have all the right answers, nor do conservatives. To teach a child that one side or the other does, is pure propganda.

This book is blatantly doctrinaire. It attempts to hammer one-sided political values into children's heads while teaching them that anyone who disagrees is evil and scary. No matter what your political leanings are, it's irresponsible to show this book to your children.

This is written as a child's book, but it has adult messages. It is clear and well illustrated. I'm going to order more for friends.

This beautiful book teaches the young ones that only Mommy Government can solve their problems. That's why Mommy Government is always "making sure" that you do whatever Mommy Government asks, or Mommy Government will put you in prison.

But don't worry, Mommy Government will solve all your problems and is always there with another suckle at the government teat. One day soon, Mommy Government will control everything, just like she does in North Korea, and a wonderful, risk-free utopia will blossom where every day is a happy ending.

This book is the perfect antidote for children who are threatened with a society full of dangerous temptations like Walmart, freedom of speech, or even (gasp!) religion. When your child asks about these things, sit down with this book and re-indoctrinate your budding Marxist on the wonders of Mommy Government.

If the book doesn't work, well, you can always threaten them with a trip to a gulag.
