I like Woodrow because he’s like the first president, George Washington. He’s Woodrow G. Washingtail and he has a last name almost the same. It’s so cute how you see all the pictures when he was a baby to when he grows up and marries his wife. I love how you get to find the Secret Agent mouse on each page of “Woodrow for President” by Peter W. Barnes and Cheryl Shaw Barnes. It’s so cool because it’s also realistic. You feel like the mice have a whole entire world to themselves. They have this whole town. I like how Woodrow helps people and his friends keep saying that he should be this and this and this until he gets to be president and he’s the “big cheese,” which sounds like something a mouse would say. I like how you get to learn about if you really want to be a president when you grow up - how you get to be president and how to make plans and write them on a piece of paper, see what you are going to do, and make a political party.
