Our 3rd grade students have been busy studying the three branches of government and they have the special opportunity this Thursday afternoon to meet author Mary Parry, author of Sadie McGrady Runs for President. Mary’s visit to the Chicagoland area is sponsored by the League of Women Voters.
Sadie McGrady Runs for President is an empowering new picture book about a young girl who imagines her own campaign for President of the United States. Sadie shows readers the fun side of campaign life, making buttons and yard signs and marching in parades, and she also overcomes challenges along the way, like facing her opponent in a debate and being interviewed by the media. The book celebrates leadership traits like courage and confidence, perseverance and teamwork. By her example, Sadie encourages readers to become strong and effective leaders.
If students would like to obtain a signed copy of the book, please fill out the order form and return it along with payment to the school no later than the morning of Thursday, Oct. 27.
