While the original concept of “the chicken or the egg?” may be a bit too complex for children to handle, the other “First, then”’s in the book can be very educational. Children will also be able to see a step-by-step process or growth on each page - using the frog as an example again, on the first page, the tadpole is a tadpole; the next page shows a tadpole growing legs, followed by the page with a full frog on it.
This book is appropriate for ages 3-5.
So You Want to be President? gives a brief and very kid-friendly idea of what it is like to be a president (the president has lots of “homework”, but doesn't have to eat vegetables), and some of the most random qualities, hobbies, etc. that you could ever want to know about them.
In the back of the book there is a timeline of the 43 presidencies (pre-Obama, as that is when this edition was revised and published), the years of their terms, and a very brief summary of what they were most well-known for. This book meets the information needs of children if they need to know any historic trivia fact about our presidents from their size, to their pets, to their musical abilities.
