2002 Award
So You Want to Be President?
(by Judith St. George/illus. by David Small, Philomel $17.99 Score:)

Maybe you'd like not having to take out the garbage or having your own swimming pool, bowling alley or movie theater. But the president has a lot of homework, can't go anywhere alone and people do not always agree with him. Using funny stories and witty illustrations, this lively award-winning book introduces young readers to lesser known presidents with somewhat irreverent snap shots about their habits and families. This is a refreshingly long way from the kind of entries usually found in the encyclopedia.

Age: Early School Years, Later School Years. Award Year: 2002. Click here to purchase the product on Amazon.com.
