Children's Book Review: Madam President (Ages 9 - 12)

Book CoverThrough her imagination, a little girl dreams of what her day might be like as President of the United States. So busy! Why she has executive orders to give, daily briefs to review, photo ops, press conferences, etc. She also has to be protected by a special “Secret Service Agent” on the playground (enter cat with dark sunglasses). She even has the power to veto “lunch specials” and school musicals. The list goes on. As Madam President, she must be careful to handle certain situations with grace and be a diplomat. Therefore, she will not comment on certain individuals with wild hats! Of course, she must show leadership abilities by first cleaning her own room. After a full day, Madam President can rest and begin again another day.

Madam President is a humorous book with adorable illustrations. The author reminds young girls to dream big, be assertive and have confidence. Lane Smith introduces us to a confident little character who is sure she can rise to any task and become a most influential and noble leader.
