Introduce young readers to Presidents' Day with this picture book classic from mom-and-daughter creators Anne and Lizzy Rockwell.
Follow along as the kids in Mrs. Madoff's class are introduced to this staple of the elementary school classroom. As a five-start reviewer put it: "I could not find a good basic book about Presidents’ Day for my kids until I found this one. It’s just enough information for them to understand what the holiday is about but it doesn’t overload them."
Today at school we celebrated Presidents' Day by putting on a play. Mrs. Madoff said I could be George Washington because his birthday is the same as mine. Charlie was Abraham Lincoln because he's the tallest kid in our class. Everyone else had very important parts to play, too. At the end of the day we voted for class president, and you'll never guess who won!
From the duo who created the classroom Kirkus calls "a charmed place" comes a patriotic primer for picture-book readers.
