If I Were President

president coverIn her new illustrated children’s book If I Were President, author Leila Leidtke draws inspiration from her grandchildren in a fun and rhyming story of a young boy who dreams of being the President of the United States.  His adventures include a round trip ride from London to Scotland, an outer space walk, riding a camel in the circus and giving each family some kind of an animal.  He is accompanied by his faithful yellow labrador and shadowed by a secret service man in sunglasses.  The author’s intention is to encourage children to dream about their future and overcome obstacles to reach their goals.
