Comments for Class President
The fifth grade elections are coming up and there are two candidates: Lucas and Cricket. Julio finds himself in the middle of the election madness when he shows his leadership skills regarding two playground problems: Arthur's broken glasses and the banning of soccer during recess.
Class President is the third in the series by Johanna Hurwitz. The first two are Class Clown and Teacher's Pet. It is the only book in the series I've read but I would read others if I ran into them.
Hurwitz makes good use of the 100 pages to develop her characters. We learn about Julio Sanchez, his family and what it's like to be Puerto Rican. The book is entertaining and informative without being preachy.
