Grace for President

Recently we were late to my daughter’s bi-weekly Show Me Readers Club meeting, so we checked out that week’s book to read together. The book, Grace for President, was such a great book that we ended up reading it a couple of times.

Written by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by LeUyen Pham, it is the story of a girl named Grace who is perturbed by the lack of female presidents in our history. When she asks her teacher why there are no girls on the wall of presidents on the school poster, her teacher’s answer makes her angry. She sits at her desk and stews, “No girls? Who’d ever heard of such a crazy thing?”
