Book Review - If I Were President

About the Book
Told through illustration and rhyme, If I Were President is the story of a young boy who imagines what he would do if he were the President of the United States for a day.

Author, Leila Leidtke, relates her story to children of any age to encourage them to dream about their future goals and to provide motivation for family members and others to help them visualize their dreams.

About the Author
The author was inspired to write this book when talking with her grandchildren about what they wanted "to be" when they grew up. The author's oldest grandson, Conner, could never decide what he liked best because he wanted to try everything that was possible to do. The author's writing has been greatly influenced by her faith. She has lived a lifetime learning about God's love and provision for our lives. It is God's gifts to us that enable us to find joy and fulfillment in our work and play. She has spent many years helping adults (many with disabilities) find their dream jobs in which their gifts and strengths were used in the workplace. At present she continue this endeavor in her resume service. The author and her husband live in Delaware, Ohio and have two children Morgan and Amy, their spouses Karen and Julie, and three grandchildren Conner, Autumn and Pascal.

My Take on the Book
Leila Lynne Leidtke has written a book that to me has two parts. The first part is a child's version of the imaginative things they may do if they were president. Who would not want a new car?

The second half relates to the Christian side of believing in God and he has a plan for our lives. The author encourages each of her readers to live the best life they can and believe in God's plan for their lives.
