Woodrow for Resident, a children's book written by Peter and Cheryl Barnes, is an amusing book featuring Woodrow G Washingtail. Woodrow is a civic minded mouse that decides he wants to run for president of the United Mice of America. The book introduces children to campaigning, voting, volunteering and more. While this was a fun and entertaining book, it was very educational at the same time. There was also a contract for voting that could be used between Parents and their children as well as activities in every illustration.
Giving this children's book a rating of a 4.0, both myself and my daughter enjoyed this book very much. It's a concise and entertaining overview of American politics that would draw any child grades K through 4 into the story. Even more so it's sparked an interest in my child to learn and read more about the electoral process while studying each individual president. A must have for any parent's library.
