The Boy Who was President for a Day. This book is a work of fiction for children. It is a bit different from most topics or sites covered by this blog. However, I read this to my oldest son the other day and he really enjoyed it. I thought it was a clever way to explain concepts such as the American Presidency and responsibility to children.
From the site:
Imagine being President for a day! The Boy Who Was President book allows kids to expand their imaginations learning what it would be like to be in charge for a day! This story includes being teacher for a day. What kid would not want to be in charge of their class for a day and receive a warm welcome from their friends for the good job they have done?
Inside the book is a difficult task. Encouraging a child's hard work and completion of the satisfactory study and then asking their parents, teachers, principal, mayor, governor, and President to certify that that they are hardworking.
