Praise For DK Readers L2: What is the President's Job? (DK Readers Level 2)

"A starter volume for newly independent readers... Singer presents both the basic responsibilities—meeting foreign leaders, working with Congress to pass laws, being in charge of the armed forces that "keep Americans safe"—and steady rounds of public appearances and speeches. She also lays out presidential qualifications...,explains how election campaigns and voting work, and offers quick tours of Washington, D.C., and the White House." –Kirkus
