Presidents' Day

The national celebration of Presidents' Day on Monday, February 15 provides a good opportunity to read a little bit about presidents past, present and future. For kids who want to learn something new and different about the first president, there is George Washington's Teeth. This rollicking rhyming book tells all about GW's life-long struggle with poor dental health!

You can find an inspiring tribute to our current president in Change Has Come which features the words of Barack Obama and the drawings of Kadir Nelson.

And, if you are thinking about a run for president yourself sometime in the future, try Big Plans by Bob Shea with illustrations by Lane Smith. It is a fun look at just how big a person's plans can become.

Happy Presidents' Day -- and Happy Reading!
