In honor of Hillary Rodham Clinton clinching the majority of Democratic pledged delegates last night, I invite you to curl up with your kids and read…
Grace for President
by Kelly DiPucchio, illustrated by LeUyen Pham.
When Grace’s teacher rolls out a poster of all U.S. Presidents from George Washington forward, Grace is shocked that there are no girls on there. She decides to run for President herself – at school. Her opponent is a do-it-all-well BOY.
Each kid in the class represents one state and decides how to cast that state’s electoral votes. Wouldn’t you know… the boys hold a slight edge in electoral votes. Can Grace win anyway?
It’s a good time to introduce kids to the electoral process….and a female candidate!
Pegged for ages 9-12.
