Mr. President Goes to School
Written by Rick Walton
Illustrated by Brad Sneed
What does an American President do when he’s feeling overwhelmed? He sneaks out of the White House in a disguise and walks 7 ½ blocks to a place he remembers very fondly…his kindergarten classroom!
Rick Walton’s fanciful story is a laugh-out-loud reminder that, while kindergarten may not supply all the necessary education required to run the country’s highest office, it does provide some very necessary fundamentals, not least among them the importance of snack time!
Hayley is excited for the first day of first grade, until she realizes it is different from kindergarten in all the wrong ways! Rodman’s story will appeal to both teachers and students alike who understand what it takes to negotiate new expectations and challenges on the first day of a new school year.
