Duck for President is one of my favorite books to read to my kids. The idea of a duck being tired of work and running for office is very funny. The pictures are great. It shows Duck in different poses similar to ones that many former Presidents have been photographed in. This gives parents something to enjoy about the book. It also gives you a chance to google a few pictures of past Presidents and teach your child some history. It can also teach the levels of government as Duck moves up to be President.
A funny account of what would happen when that naughty duck from Click, Clack, Moo and other books by Cynthia Rylant decides that he's tired of working on the farm and wants another job. Duck gets more than he bargained for, however, in this humorous tale that teaches us to appreciate what we have (and those around us!)
