President Taft Is Stuck in the Bath by Mac Barnett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm a sucker for books about presidents and first ladies - (So You Want to Be President? is a favorite of mine), so I opened this book up with a happy heart. Mac Barnett and Chris Van Dusen did not disappoint. About a hundred years ago, our largest (to-date) president may (or may not: see the end pages) have gotten stuck in his bathtub. Barnett, who is once again a hoot of a storyteller - has Taft calling to the First Lady, VP, and every cabinet member (it's a civics lesson too!) who each have a unique solution to the president's soapy dilemma. The strong illustrations and almost sing-songy, near-rhyme prose would make this a great President's Day read aloud too.
