Dog or Cat?
A father tells his child that two men will run for president. A race? The child says his cat and dog are pretty fast.
This story features a dog and a cat running for president. The two pets are very different but they both seek to win the same prize. They hit the campaign trail and try to convince the voters that they are the best candidate for the job. However, they realize that they should be working as partners instead of against each other.
My Thoughts
Children love to learn about politics during an election year. Many schools have school-wide elections with authentic-looking ballots so children can learn about our government and how our leaders are chosen.
This story features a dog and a cat running for president. Many children will have a preference for a cat or dog based on their experiences with family pets. Dogs and cats are different but they are both great pets.
This rhyming story is a great way to teach children about politics and have some fun with the comparisons. How are dogs and cats similar? How are dogs and cats different? How are Democrats and Republicans similar? How are they different?
I read this book on my Kindle Fire HD and loved the color illustrations. I used the landscape orientation and the illustrations filled the entire screen. There are two lines of rhyming text on each page and you can enlarge the type by tapping on the screen.
This story offers an opportunity to have some fun with the presidential election. Will kids be able to choose? Dog or cat?
Wait! Maybe they won't have to choose after all.
Highly recommended for kids of all ages.
My Rating: 5 Stars Out Of 5
