    This is a fun book for students. It is very entertaining but it also teaches a few different lessons. It helps students realize that they should be heard and respected no matter what. They are able to get involved and try to make a difference even at a young age.

    This book is about a duck who thinks he is treated unfairly so he creates a barnyard democracy. After winning that he runs for governor and president but realizes the hard work and heads home to write an autobiography. This is a good fantasy book because animals can't create a democracy and a duck wouldn't win a serious election. I would use this book in primary and maybe intermediate.

    In this third humorous picture-book featuring the independent-minded animals on Farmer Brown's farm, Duck decides that he should be in charge, setting up an election that sees him rise to power. Soon deciding that running a farm is no fun, he next sets his sights on the governor's office, only to discover that running the state is also hard work. His solution? Run for President, of course! Needless to say, running a country is even harder work, and soon Duck is once again looking for something new...I enjoyed Duck for President, which pairs an entertaining tale from author Doreen Cronin with appealing watercolor artwork from illustrator Betsy Lewin. Although it wasn't quite as giggle-inducing as the previous two books in the series, Click, Clack Moo: Cows That Type and Giggle, Giggle, Quack, it will still have great appeal to anyone who enjoyed those books, and wants to see what Duck gets up to next. As Farmer Brown has been known to say, you have to keep your eye on that fowl!

    Duck is tried of working and wants to change that. He starts a campaign to earn votes to become the farmer to run the farm. This book is super cute.

    When Duck gets tired of working for Farmer Brown, he decides to hold an election to see who will become the new farmer. Duck wins. Then he runs for governor, and then for president, winning both elections. But being president is a lot of work. The author's humorous description of various campaign processes can open up good discussion.

    Fantasy book about a duck who is tired of doing his chores, so he decides to hold an election to replace Farmer Brown. He then discovers that it is a lot of work so he decides to run for governor instead.

    This is an excellent book to use in the classroom! Even though it is a fictional story, it does show some very real truths about the responsibilities and concerns about being President (or about holding any office position, really). The kids LOVE the fact that Duck runs against Farmer for President, and they really enjoy seeing how all the other animals react to the election status throughout the story. This would be a great text to use if you were doing a unit on the American Government system. You could even create a sort of mock election in your own classroom if you had a year that a Presidential election was taking place.

    This is a fun book for kids about imagination. In this book, the duck who lives on the farm decides that he wants to be more than just a duck. He goes through many different things that he wants to be, but he ends up wanting to be president. At the end of the story, he finally realizes that being just a duck is the best thing that he can be. This teaches kids that eventhough sometimes they think that they are not satisfied with who they are, the best thing for them to be is themselves.

    This book is great for teaching about politics and elections in a way that is fun and humorous. I think kids will really enjoy this silly duck and his journey.

    This was used as a read aloud during class. It had a lot of good vocabulary and could be used to teach students about voting.

    This is a really good book to read in the months or weeks before election day. The duck lives on a farm and notices how many things that need to change for the farm to run more smoothly, so he runs for president. A good lesson that could be drawn from this book is for students to be more involved in their community and to of course vote for president. It has a little advanced vocabulary for lower grades, but it is good to teach them political vocabulary in view of the election. I really enjoyed this book when we read it in our lecture class.

    I would use this book every year around election time because it will help explain to the students what election time is and what it means. Also, I would use this book for vocabulary because there is a lot of words that the students may not know dealing with election time. I think the children would enjoy this book because it's not everyday you see a duck running for present.

    This is a book that can be used during election time, also good for teaching different settings throughout the story. The kids would love this book because it is hilarious and they understand about election. It makes them feel like grown-ups.

    Great book! One of my favorites. Duck doesn't like how things are run on the farm so he decides to take charge and run for president so that he can take charge. This could be a great lesson on new vocabulary they may hear during election times. Some of the words they hear may sound familiar but are used in different context. This also could be a book to read before an election to teach them about the process of how an election works. This could lead into a classroom election where the class has their own president.

    How does it go? We are perfect as we are and we could all use a little improvement? DUCK FOR PRESIDENT is a cheeky illustration of just that. Why try so hard to be someone else when it's so much easier to be ourselves?
  • (5/5)
    This book would be good to use for vocabulary study. I think students will like it because it uses words that they've probably heard, but weren't sure what they meant.

    I really enjoyed this book. Duck is amusing and the illustrations are good. The book reminds me of a children's introduction to [Animal Farm].

    Summary:Duck was not a big fan of doing chores. He decided that they needed a new leader. Duck posted a poster to replace Farmer Brown. Farmer Brown was very upset, especially since duck won the election. Duck realized that running a farm was no easy job. Duck decided to run for Governor and was in charge of running the state; which was a very hard job. He realized that it was no fun, and decided to run for president. On election day, results were counted and Duck won as president. He knew that running a country was difficult, always covered in dirt, coffee stains and a horrible heahache. Duck went back to visit Farmer Brown and was back in his desk writing his biography.Personal Reaction:I enjoyed the story becasue it made it very simple and understandable with the election process in a sense that kids can understand. I liked how it was written in the ducks viewpoint.Classroom Extension:1.I would use this book for when elections happen.2.Have students do an election but within the classroom, and have specfifc responsibilities.

    "Duck for President" would be a great book to introduce the election and voting to young readers. The books is about the animals that live on the farm and how they all have to help out with their chores. Duck agrees and he thinks he should replace Farmer Brown and run the farm. So Duck decides to become president of the farm and to make a change. Duck finally realizes this is hard work and the decides the let Farmer Brown take back over the farm.

    Duck for President would help introduce voting and the voting process when teaching about government. However, this book is more introduces school elections than government elections.

    Summary:In the beginning of the story there are farm animals who do not like to do chores, so the duck of the farm decides he wants to run the farm. So all the animals vote. He then decides that he wants to run for bigger things such as the Governor and President. He then realizes that all of these jobs were harder than he had expected.Personal Reaction:This book I feel was to get the point across that the jobs of people who are head of you, are not easy. That in order to be able to do such jobs as a farmer, governor and president are very hard jobs that most people do not understand. I feel this book is for kids who are a little older like 2nd grade.Classroom Extension Ideas:I think that this is a good idea to let the students vote for a child in class and see who wins. Just so that they can understand how the voting system goes.

    Duck does not want to do the chores he has been given by Farmer Brown so he embarks on a campaign that takes him higher and higher up the political ladder. I enjoyed reading this book and got a kick out of the character of Duck. Great moral. This would be a good book to use to prompt class elections or a discussion of elections.

    Media: Brush and WatercolorGenre: FantasyReview: The author does a good job of making this a fantasy book because the characters and setting is made to be believable even though a duck can not really run for different political positions or do chores. When Duck realizes that he does not like to do the chores that Farmer Brown has left him he quickly decides that his is going to hold an election to overthrow Farmer Brown. This same pattern continues until Duck is running for president. In the end, he realizes that where he came from was his favorite.

    This book, to me, teaches that you should be yourself. I don't feel that a young child typically deals with "Who Am I" issues. But it might hit the future road of insecurity head on. Which is always a good thing. The pictures were fun and perfect for children. The story line is also easy to follow. Overall, I liked it.

    Why does all government study have to be boring? This book is a great humorous look at running for office to make changes, and discovering the job is more than you ever imagined. Duck has high aspirations! Build up to this book by reading the others in the series first.

    "Duck for President" is about a group of farm animals that decide to elect the Duck for president after being unsatisfied with how farmer brown was running things. This book is so cute and teaches a great lesson about hard work and chores. I would use this book as a writing lesson where I would read the book to the student then have them come up with there own imaginative stories using animals and everyday activities.
  • (5/5)
    My favourite of the first four books in this series, in Vote for Duck/Duck for President, Cronin not only carries readers with her back to visit the hapless Farmer Brown and the ever crafty Duck, but she takes the opportunity to poke sly fun at the political process and political arena in both general terms and specifically the election of George W. Bush over Al Gore. Lewin's illustrations are as colourful and whimsical as ever, but this book offers more to chew on for the adults who might need to read and reread this book to kids several thousand times, and for teachers looking for an accessible hook for teaching politics, electoral process, media spin and the marketing of information, and political activism. Go, Duck!

    Primary or IntermediateGenre: Fantasy- Ducks can't be farmers or presidents or governors. The duck in this book was doing all of these things. These things are just not realistic at all. This book was definitely fantasy because of it.Character: Duck was pretty flat and static. He didn't really change at the end. He should have changed and wanted to help with chores, but he ended up just sitting writing on the typewriter instead. We also don't know that much about him making him a flat character.

    Genre: Modern FantasyCritique of Genre: This is an excellent example of modern fantasy because it describes a duck that is eventually elected as President of the United States, a thing that could not happen in real life. The author, however, writes in a way that makes the story believable.Age: Primary, IntermediateCritique of Setting: (See star rating above)
