The President and I: Book Buying Besties
Yesterday, our nation’s President and I did exactly the same thing: we went to a bookstore and bought (among other purchases) a Lulu book by Judith Viorst and Lane Smith.
President Obama did his Lulu buying at Politics & Prose in Washington D.C., while I did mine at McLean & Eakin in Petoskey, MI (click here to see everything I picked up)
And the children’s book buying didn’t end there – also in the President’s bag:
Heart of a Samurai by Margi Preus
Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo
Moonday by Adam Rex
Jinx by Sage Blackwood
Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell
Journey by Aaron Becker
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
