Class President

By Johanna Hurwitz
Rating: 4 stars
Reviewed by Karen

Mr. Flores' 5th grade class is voting for a class president. Popular Cricket Kaufman wants to run and Julio expects she will win. Julio would like to run but doesn't think he stands a chance against Cricket. He decides to help Lucas' campaign instead, but as the week goes by his own leadership abilities become apparent. The characters are well rounded and there is humor in the the story too - Lucas' three year old twin brothers shampoo their hair in the boy's room at school! The ending is predictable but children might not think so.
