Buddy for President by Hans Wilhelm - ESSENTIAL

Wilhelm, Hans Buddy for President. PICTURE BOOK. Harper Collins, 2016. $17.99. Content: G. 

Buddy is the best dog a boy could ask for, so why not give him your vote for President? Buddy's owner lists Buddy's presidential qualities and outlines a peaceful and amazing doggy future for the country with a canine at its head. And keep in mind, if you don't vote for Buddy "the other guy" will win! 

This is an endearing and fun book that has a great message about making an educated decision in voting. I loved the pictures and all the reasons Buddy would make a good president. I think this would be a wonderful book for teachers to use in their classrooms to discuss elections. Its a great read-aloud and can lead to plenty of good discussion.
