Review: Babymouse for President
Babymouse for President by Jennifer L. Holm
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Babymouse series is one of those remarkable creations: a pink book that appeals to boys. I have had no trouble selling 8-year-olds on the dramatic, hyperactive, accident-prone mouse. Kids with a more subtle sense of humor appreciate the narrator's snarky comments, but everybody loves being smarter than Babymouse.
This newest volume is right on time for the 2012 election. Kids who aren't quite ready to formulate opinions about presidential politics still have plenty of ideas being thrust upon them about what an election is about. Babymouse isn't intimidating; perhaps young would-be politicians will be inspired by her dreams.
