Madam President and Big Plans

Anytime Lane Smith is mentioned with children's books you know you are in for a treat! And these two latest publications are just that - a REAL TREAT - and timely for this presidential season.
Madam President by Lane Smith is hilarious, witty, and such a great introduction to the president's job - kids will love this one.  I love it too that the main character is a girl - a girl wanna-be president - how fun with today's times!
Big Plans by Bob Shea and Lane Smith is a funny story about a boy that has "big plans".  He goes through the story telling everyone his "big plans" and we don't know until the end of the book what his "big plans" are.  Or do we!?!?!?  You will need to read it to find out!  This book also touches on the president's job as well - so it would be a great read-aloud at this time of year!

I love your web site and have garnered many good reading selections for my children from it.

Do you have any suggestions for good nonfiction for a 5th grade girl? She is a good reader, but most of what I'm familiar with is fiction.

You can email me at or post a response on my blog.

Thanks so much!
