Critique:

Sometimes, I wonder too, where are the girls? This is a great read close to election day. It gives a good introduction to the American electoral system, in a simple way, for young children to understand. It showed that being the president is a very hard job and it is important to listen to important issues from others. Most of all the book conveyed that no matter your gender, color or size nothing is impossible if you work hard and put your mind to it.
