Got Votes?

Duck does! On three separate occasions, duck wins out over his running mate for: Farmer, Governor, then President!

Duck for President is another wonderful book by Doreen Cronin (I LOVE Click Clack, Moo, Cows That Type), and Betsy Lewin's illustrations are absolutely wonderful!

In this tale, Duck learns that it's true that the grass is always greener, as he finds that every job (that he thinks is going to be easy) has it's headaches! The book is full of good humor, a great introduction to elections/politics for kids, and some "counting" issues when ballots are re-counted in each race.

The end is a great (and funny) twist! This would be an excellent book to share with the little folk in your life today! Happy Election Day 2008!!

We have both Duck For President and Click Click Moo... they get into the bedtime rotation every few months. Click Clack Moo was Annmarie's fav when she was in 1st grade. That and The Kissing Hand (another great one... I forget the author though :) Those are like staples around here. And yet I didn't even think to pull out Duck during the election. Too much going on around here lately! haha
