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.

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.
