BIG PLANS and Madam President by Lane Smith

BIG PLANS and Madam President, two great picture books from Lane Smith, are perfect picks for any child. In Madam President, a girl describes what her role would be as the president of the United States—from civil duties to security to handling disasters (messy rooms? No problem!). It’s an important and hard job, but someone has to do it!

BIG PLANS tells the story of a boy who has BIG PLANS, and with the help of a mynah bird, they plan to spread the word all across the world—even to the moon. Soon he’ll become president, and use his BIG PLANS to make the world a better place!

Both books are extremely catchy and fun, and the art is big, loud, and engaging. Both of these energetic books have an extremely appealing and enthusiastic flair and wit that will make them popular with the younger set.
