5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect read before the inauguration, January 31, 2009
This review is from: Grace for President (Hardcover)
A friend to whom I will always be indebted gifted my 4 yo daughter with this book. I read it to her the night before the inauguration. She hung on every word, asking questions about the electoral college, her eyes drinking in every colorful, fancifully animated page. This book is a true work of art.

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."
