President of the Whole Fifth Grade

President of the Whole Fifth Grade - Sherri Winston I read this book to see if it was a good gift & appropriate. It was not only a fun appropriate read, it encouraged intelligence, hard work & integrity. I believe any child would benefit from reading this book. Especially if they have big dreams.....most of them do!

Brianna along with friends Sara, Beck & Lauren want to be business women. They learn about good money habits & friendship in this "scandalous"(as perceived by 5th grade girls) 5th grade battle for presidency. They also learn the value of self-control, discipline, honesty & integrity. They learn about selflessness & charity. They even talk about wealth investment for financial philanthropy! Important lessons abound in this book!
