Children’s Lit Gold: ‘Obama’ Rhymes with ‘Mama’
From the author who brought you the kinda weird “Why Mommy is a Democrat” and “Why Daddy is a Democrat” books, which I posted about last summer, comes a new not-so-subtle title, “Mama Voted for Obama“. I don’t see this one getting much play in school libraries – the promotional blurb doesn’t help matters:
ThisÂ colorfulÂ book of rhythmÂ and rhyme is aÂ fun andÂ easyÂ way to make sure your kidsÂ know you made the rightÂ choice in 2008!
Regardless of your political leanings, that’s odd. Although I have to admit that the illustrations are easy on the eyes in a colorform-tastic sort of way. Click the image below to view more sample pages.
