Woodrow For President~Peter & Cheryl Barnes~Book Review TLC Book Tours

by adustyframe ~ August 20th, 2012

With the election coming up this fall, I’ve been looking for resources for school so James (and I!) can understand this process better.

I was asked to review this book and while it’s definitely a resource for younger children James and I both enjoyed learning from it.

Woodrow for President by Peter & Cheryl Barnes is available from Amazon.

Woodrow decides to run for president and the book shares the process in easy to understand language for young children while including charming illustrations.

Here’s a description of the book~

Election year is upon us and what better way to teach children about campaigning, voting, and the election process than through Cheryl and Peter Barnes’ critically-acclaimed book Woodrow for President!

Featuring Woodrow G. Washingtail, a civic-minded mouse with presidential ambitions, Woodrow for President follows Woodrow as he runs for president of the United Mice of America.

Taking children on a journey from Woodrow’s schoolmouse days full of hard work and community service to his time as governor of Moussouri to his bid for president of the United Mice of America, Woodrow for President introduces children to campaigning, elections, volunteering, and more through this fun—and educational—story of one mouse’s dream to become the nation’s “Big Cheese.”

Featuring a contract for voting between parents and kids as well as fun activities such as “find the secret service agent” in every illustration, Woodrow for President is perfect for any child in K-4 who might one day aspire to be the “Commander in Cheese.”


Woodrow for President by Peter & Cheryl Barnes retails for $16.95 and is a hardcover book with a dust jacket. It is written for ages K-4. It is written poetry form with sweet illustrations. Follow Woodrow as he makes the decision to run for office—all the way up to the President!
