By writing a President’s Day report on the USA’s fourth—and shortest—president, James Madison, James “Stink” Moody learns to accept that growing takes time. Readers of McDonald’s popular Judy Moody series will be eager to read this, the first book focusing on Judy’s little brother. The large print, Reynolds’ fun illustrations, and the Stink-drawn comics interspersed throughout will attract attention from younger readers, as well. Stink is a likable and believable character and one many elementary kids will identify with as he deals with a class pet disaster, the tribulations of feeling too small, and a bossy older sister.

This would make a fun read-aloud for Presidents’ Day; follow it by having students select a lesser-known Commander-in-Chief for their own research project.
