Kindergarten-Grade 3–Oliver's class has been learning about elections and presidential responsibilities. He writes a letter to Channel 39, putting forth a plethora of reasons why his teacher would be perfect presidential material. The story proceeds with a single sentence and appropriate illustration on the verso depicting a school activity, with a picture opposite demonstrating how that activity would play out when his teacher holds the reins in Washington. For example, "She's used to being followed everywhere" shows the class parading after her in line, while on the right, secret service agents and cameramen tag along as she jogs. Winters keeps these parallels both humorous and pithy, and Brunkus's cheery, color cartoons add to the fun. Oliver's appreciation of his teacher (she can only be president if she doesn't leave before the end of the year) is refreshing. An enjoyable and timely read-aloud, and good fodder for discussion.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

K-Gr. 2. What characteristics make a good president? Oliver knows it's some of the same things that make a good teacher: people pay attention when the president speaks, the president acts quickly when there's a crisis, and so on. Brunkus' cheerful illustrations show a gray-haired woman in large, round glasses in dual roles: as Oliver's teacher initialing a bathroom pass and as a president signing a bill into law. "My teacher likes to go on trips," says Oliver as his teacher marshals rowdy students toward a museum for a visit; opposite, the president is shown visiting with heads of state. There's not much here about voting or the election process, but there's plenty to get prospective voters to think about what they want their president to be like. The humorous tone brings lofty ideals about desirable presidential qualities down to an everyday, accessible level--for children and adults alike.
