"This easy picture book provides a nice introductions to the presidency for primary-grade children...This is a rosy picture of a very stressful job, but youngsters will pick up some good general information, which teachers can use as a starting point in class and expand upon according to the age and ability of their students."--Booklist

"This light introduction to the office touches on duties that come with the job, such as being in charge of the armed forces and working with Congress to make laws. Some perks are mentioned as well, including having a chef and lighting the nation's holiday tree. The loosely rendered illustrations match the informal, informative text."--The Horn Book Guide

"A simple explanation of the diverse duties of the president of the United States. Beginning with campaign speeches and posters, six children of varied racial backgrounds take turns posing as the president while providing information about the rewards and responsibilities of the position."--School Library Journal
