It is our pleasure, our honor, our duty as citizens to present to you Duck for President. Here is a duck who began in a humble pond. Who worked his way to farmer. To governor. And now, perhaps, to the highest office in the land.
Some say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he is a duck.
We say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he will be the next president of the United States of America.
Thank you for your vote.
This is a great book to introduce to kids how elections and voting works in our country. There are numerous elections, campaigns, and votes that take place in this book. Duck thinks that he wants to be mayor and thinks that it is too much work, so he wants a different job. This pattern continues until Duck is president and realizes that elected officials have a lot of responsibility. One day when he is tired of being president, he sees an ad in the newspaper for a duck to perform duties on a farm, like he used to. He decides that being the president is too much work, and returns to the farm.
