dear mr. president barack sir

A collection of kids' letters to President BHO, Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country, includes such sage advice as:

"If I were president, I would help all nations, even Hawaii."

"1. Fly to the White House in a helicopter. 2. Walk in.
3. Wipe feet. 4. Walk to the Oval Office. 5. Sit down in a chair.
6. Put hand sanitizer on hands. 7. Enjoy moment.
8. Get up. 9. Get in car. 10. Go to the dog pound."

Some of the special advisors read their counsel to President Obama on this YouTube treat:

The pressure is so ON.

I JUST bought two copies of this book on Sunday at one of the coolest shops in San Francisco (829 Valencia, which is a writing lab for kids and also a Pirate Supply Shop). While I was there, I was lucky enough to get a copy signed by one of the authors.

Actually, she was dying of embarrassment and did not want to sign the book, but her dad guilted her into it. Being that we were in a pirate supply store, she was able to sign it with a large feather plumed pen, which made it much more exciting.

The book is awesome.

826 is such a wonderful organization! I wasn't aware of this book, though. I'll have to check it out.

I just read Tangobaby's comment. Our 826 Michigan here in Ann Arbor has a Robot Supply shop. ;-)
