I read this aloud to my kids when we did an American government unit and it was filled with great facts as well as a fun story of a boy running for president. My kids really enjoyed it.

I loved this book when i was younger. Very humorous and fun to read. Judson Moon made one of my favorite quotes, "Grown ups have had the past thousand years to mess up the world. Now it's our turn!" I just wish it was non fiction.

Judson Moon is charismatic, and funny at times but if you are looking for a book that teaches your kid somethings except politicians full of lies.

I was hoping for much more then a moral story from this book other then what I received from the book. I think there could have been so much more added to educate children about the Constitution or Congress. Instead it is a book about a goofball kid who want to be honest, which is fine and good. I was just hopeful for more educational with fun and not moral with fun or could have had both.

This book also has a sequel which if I mention the title ruins this book.

That's how I introduced myself to about a zillion people last year. I must have kissed a zillion babies, and said a zilion hellos, shaken a zillion hands.
I got a lot of votes. Enough to make me President of the United States? Well you can peek at the last page and find out. That is, if your a total weenie with the attentions span of a flea. Or you can read this book and get the whole story.Me? I'd read the book.

"Hi! My name is Judson Moon. I'm twelve years old and I'm running for the President of the YOU-nited States." That's how I introduced myself to about a zillion people last year. I must have kissed a zillion babies, said a zillion hellos, shaken a zillion hands. . .
