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!)

Running a farm is hard work, and the animals have chores to do, too. "Why is Farmer Brown in charge, anyway?" thought Duck, who decided to have an election. Farmer Brown must go! Farm election! Vote Duck for a kinder, gentler farm! Duck wins the farm election, then moves on to governor, and then to president. Fun book that doubles as a simple lesson about the election process. Hardcover retails for $9.95.

A good book that makes you think, but it goes above the heads of most first graders. Better for older kids who have a better grasp of the concept of voting.
