Presidents' Day (Paperback)
From the duo who created the classroom Kirkus Reviews called "a charmed place" comes a patriotic primer for picture-book readers.
Today at school we celebrated Presidents' Day by putting on a play. Mrs. Madoff said I could be George Washington because his birthday is the same as mine. Charlie was Abraham Lincoln because he's the tallest kid in our class. Everyone else had very important parts to play, too. At the end of the day we voted for class president, and you'll never guess who won!
