If I Were President

If I Were President

by Catherine Stier Illustrated by Dyanne DiSalvo-Ryan

Imagine living in the White House, a mansion where you wouldn't have to leave home to go bowling or see a movie! Imagine a chef to cook anything you like. "Two desserts tonight, Madam President? No problem!"

If you were president, you would work in the Oval Office, get help making decisions from people in your cabinet, and be in charge of the armed forces. The Secret Service would follow you everywhere, and Air Force One would carry you on trips, sometimes to other nations.

A multicultural cast of children imagines what it would be like to be president. Readers will be so caught up in the fun they won't realize that the book is also an ingenious teaching device and discussion starter. A note about the presidency accompanies the story.
