After the U.S. election, lots of kids wrote to President Obama to let him know what they thought about his new role in the White House. Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country is a collection of the heartfelt and hilarious letters that were gathered by the cool people behind 826 Valencia—a fantastic writing and tutoring center that brings out the awesome in reading and writing. Kidzworld takes a sneak peak at this new book that features dozens of letters and lots of great drawings by smart, creative kids just like you!

Some Good Advice

Lots of the letters offer Obama advice, like the one written by Matthew Wong. The eight year old from Chicago says, “The first thing President Obama needs to do is put his stuff in the White House.” Matthew also warns the President to “Be careful,” because “Abraham Lincoln haunts one of the bedrooms.” Does the White House have an offical ghostbuster? Here’s hoping. And just in case Obama isn’t sure about what he should do first, Chandler Browne, who’s twelve and also from Chicago, provided him with a list of the first ten things he should do as president:

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.

Once Obama gets to the dog pound, Chandler suggests he choose a Cockapoo, a Labradoodle or a Goldendoodle, since he knows that Obama’s daughter, Sasha, is allergic to animals with fur.


If Kids Ruled the White House

If Hamza Saalim from Ann Arbor “made up a rule, it would be to have snow cones every week.” Obama “should give the whole United States of America snow cone.” Amir Abdelhadi, aged 6, wants to “fill the White House with chocolate and gravy (but not together) and mashed potatoes or maybe fill it with root beer.” Then he’d “drive through the White House on a boat.” Makes sense to us!

(and making them a 'distraction')

    Both are over rated... but I prefer dabing and the occasional "this rock is a fidget spinner" jokes from people who make fun of popular kids and their trends. ....
