If I Were President
If I were president, everyone who wanted a dog would get a dog, everyone who wanted a bike would get a bike, and everyone who wanted a friend would get at least two . . .
With disarming frankness, a young boy gives his perspective on several things the grown-ups running the country could do differently. His recommendations are both playful and profound. How much happier would we be if all the adults went to kindergarten once a month to remind themselves how to play? How much safer would we be if Christmas lights were left up all year round to light everyone’s way home? This gorgeously illustrated picture book is for all those children who dare to dream big and for all those adults who want to look on the world with fresh eyes.
