    Dan Gutman’s WE’RE RED, WEIRD, AND BLUE, WHAT CAN WE DO? A My Weird School Presidents’ Day Special

  2. Anne Childress says:

    School library Journal needs to get over their bias and show a good biography for kids on President Donald John Trump.

  3. Cathy Hirsch says:

    I work in a middle school and I have never once had a student ask for a book about Trump. Trump gets enough media attention. I don’t think students feel a need to learn much more about him.
