Jacqueline The Great! Runs for President! by Christin Berger


coverfinal.inddExcitement is in the air. The princesses just read Jacqueline The Great! Runs for President! by Christin Berger.

“What if one of us were the first female president?” Breanna asked.

“That would be so cool!” Janna replied.

“That’s a long time to wait,” Harmonie added.

“Yes, but I agree with what Jacqueline says,” Coral replied. “Girls can do anything they want to do.”

“And she has a boy for her Vice-President,” Catie said. “That’s because girls and boys should be treated equally.”

“We can dream of the day when a woman is president,” Janna said. “Or we can work to make it happen.”

“President Harmonie, come quick!” Coral teased. “Can you please help bring peace to the world?”


Jacqueline The Great! Runs for President! is the second book in the Jacqueline picture book series aimed at empowering girls without denigrating boys. It is great for both young girls and boys.

Little Miss History Travels to Mount Rushmore by Barbara Ann Mojica

Little Miss History Goes to Mount Rushmore by Barbara Ann MojicaThe princesses read Little Miss History Travels to Mount Rushmore by Barbara Ann Mojica in school today. What did you read?

“History is so much more fun when you can relate to it,” Coral said.

“I think Little Miss History got her hiking boots at the same place as you, Janna,” Breanna teased.

“Hmm, they do look like mine,” Janna agreed. “But let’s get back to talking about the book.”

“Mount Rushmore is cool,” Harmonie said. “Let’s ask if we can go there sometime.”

“Hey, maybe when we go to Yellowstone, your mom will take us,” Catie said to Janna.

“They aren’t very close together,” Janna replied. “But she might take us, anyway.”

“Aren’t you going to say anything about the pictures, Catie?” Janna teased. “You are the art critic of the group.”

“I happen to love the pictures,” Catie replied. “Thanks for asking.”


Little Miss History Travels to Mount Rushmore is an educational picture book for both pre-school and young school aged children.

“I loved that the book was about sea creatures,” Coral said.

“The part where Hatchling splashed like a baby duckling was funny,” Janna said.

“Oh! Me too,” Breaana agreed. “But the mama duck wasn’t nice to Hatchling, though.”

“I liked the brightly colored pictures,” Catie said.

“I know how turtle feels,” Harmonie said. “I wish I knew my mother, too.”
