A Picture Book 4 My President

Picture books can open minds, heal wounds and tickle fancies. Fiction or non-fiction, picture books invite the exploration of other times, dimensions, places, realities, possibilities & goals. Everyone gains something from picture books. Everyone learns lessons that last a life time. So… 

Which picture book would you recommend to the next
President of the United States? Why?
