and our sequel
This delightful picture book by two Washington-area residents tells in catchy rhyming couplets the tale of a little girl with a big dream, and an imagination to match. Eight-year-old Amanda not only wants to be president, she can see herself in the Oval Office right now. She won't just be holding up in the White House, either. Here she pictures herself acting presidential at a whole series of Washington Landmarks, from Einstein's statue and the Smithsonian Castle to the Kennedy Center and the Capitol. So vividly that even her big brother is sold on the idea. Gaston's sunny pictures bring many familiar corners of the city alive. Better yet, they should inspire a lot of little girls to visualize themselves, as Amanda does, where they will one day be at the very highest level of political power.
