Cat or Dog for President: Review

Cat or Dog for President
Author: Julia Dweck
Cat or Dog for President
Summary:

The narrator asks the intriguing question all Americans want answered: Who would win if a cat and dog ran for President of the United States? Cat and dog lovers will both agree that this is a fun rhyming tale with a political heart. Both sides of the campaign are humorously depicted in a clever way that young readers will relate to and understand. The illustrations are rich, bold and colorful. "Cat or Dog for President" will keep readers engaged and laughing from beginning to end.

My Thoughts:

Oh my goodness, I LOVED this book! It was so adorable. This book teaches children about politics in a way that their minds can understand and in a way that will interest them. It also teaches them that sometimes things would be much better if we could all get along instead of always being against each other and I truly think that is an amazing message.

I absolutely loved the rhyming of the story and the illustrations were absolutely beautiful! Kids will love the bright colors in this book. It is perfect for this time of the year with all the election talk that the kids hear everyone talking about. Their parents are talking about it, the news is talking about it, they learn about it in school, and now they can have a fun book about it! I think everyone would love this story!

I only wish that I could buy it as a paperback instead of only on Kindle. Oh well, my kids will still love it. You should all definitely check this book out!

  7. Sounds like a lot of fun!

    As a cat person, I must, of course, declare that we all know the winner would be of the feline species.
