Can you picture a kid as President?
Election season is in full swing, and we’re reading some great books to prepare for Election Day on November 8. The first book on our list? The Kid Who Ran for President (Ages 8–12) by Dan Gutman! In this sharp, funny farce, Judson Moon is the youngest candidate to ever run for President of the United States. He feels he has what it takes. Imagine what could be accomplished in a country where parents listen. Where teachers give no homework. Where every lawmaker obeys a single kid!
