Duck for President by Doreen Cronin
Our November book feature is Duck for President! Duck was Farmer Brown's number one helper. Though all the animals on the farm had chores, Duck's were the hardest. Every day he returned to the barn covered in bits of grass and espresso beans, tired and thinking his chore list was not quite fair! Then, one day after doing his chores, he was so tired that he decided to have a farm election. Not satisfied with the outcome of that situation, he decided to run for Governor and then President! When Duck realizes the amount of work and responsibility involved in leadership, will Duck's campaign trail continue?
Children young and old can learn from this book and all will enjoy the colorful illustrations! Duck for President is a perfect read aloud for this presidential election year.
