Many a parent has said, “You can do anything, you can even be president.”  And, many a child may dream of holding that very important position.

Roger Nix isn’t one of those little boys.  He’s an 5 yr. old that likes to play with his imaginary friends, much like my little girl does.  But when he finds out that Old Man Plee, a perennial presidential candidate, plans to shut down schools and send kids to work in factories after he is elected, Roger decides to run against Old Man Plee as a defender of “school and summer vacation, learning and imagination”.

Sound like a fun and interesting read with your child?   Here’s an excerpt to get you started:

Roger stood up quickly. He had something to say
With a wink from Jack and a trunks-up from Abe.
I’ll run against him,” Roger said with a shout.
I’ll run for president, have you no doubt!
 
To close school would be nothing short of a crime
You can’t fool all us kids, not all of the time.”
 
He stood on his desk and they all watched and wondered
As Roger kept talking, his voice boomed and thundered.
“We’ll beat him and keep all the schools as they are
Or make them way better. We’ll shoot for the stars!
We go to school so one day we’ll go far,
Not because it is easy–because it is hard!
 
We are KIDS! The whole point is to learn and have fun
And to use our wee noggins…
I think you and your child will love the rhyme time and the message that Roger Nix shares.  This book is slated for production in just two months and you can pre-order it with your pledge to make sure it does.  With your pledge of $30.00 towards the Roger Nix President at Age 6 campaign  you receive a first edition hardcover copy of the book and a Roger Nix campaign bumper sticker, delivered in time for the new school year this fall.  This is a timely story that is fascinating, engaging, and a thought-provoking read for both kids and parents written by an imaginative adult who was encouraged to explore his imagination as a child.

Enjoy the show!
