When Penny Met POTUS
When Penny Met POTUS is a good book with one major flaw. The book is very unbelievable. The plot is about a girl who gets to go to work with her mom at the White House for a day. She really wants to meet her mom’s boss, POTUS. First of all, she wouldn’t be allowed to go to the White House. Second, her mom would notice when her daughter sneaks out of the room. Next, she wouldn’t find the President feeding fish in the hall. (I would think that the President of the United States has more important things to do.) And last, they would not eat ice cream together on a kitchen counter. My point being that you don’t have to make characters unrealistic to give children a positive idea of the government. This is also a feminist book. It has only female main characters. The book makes a big statement by having a female president. Don’t throw away the opportunity of getting this book. It takes a talented writer to teach politics to kids in a fun way. Not to mention the enjoyable illustrations. I really like how illustrator Melissa Manwill captures the idea of the book. I really loved reading the book. I think this book should be shared with girls all over the USA.
