When I have a piece of chalk,

 I play hopscotch on my walk.

Sometimes I jump with all my might

and leap so far I'm out of sight.

If I land in a White House tree,

the Secret Service keep their eyes on me.


Thus begins the story of Amanda, a little girl with one of the biggest dreams of all -- the dream to be the President of the United States. Naturally, her story is told against the backdrop of Washington, D.C. with all the splendor and charm of the famous places. Here is a delightful tale of the presidency from the point of view of an eight-year-old girl who longs to show her older brother a thing or two. This is a great self esteem book for girls.
