A Child's First Book of Trump by Michael Ian Black

A Child's First Book of Trump with its Seuss-like rhyming is not for children. It is clearly intended for adults and people who are left-leaning, although Trump showed up to a book reading on TV of this book by the author Michael Ian Black, so he had a sense of humor about it. With about 25 days left until the 2016 Presidential election, we could use the laugh-out-loud moments that this book delivers. Reading this book with older children could open up discussions on politics and the election. The illustrations are spot-on and a highlight of the book. The illustrator, Mark Rosenthal has illustrated many popular children's books. The author, Ian Michael Black is a comedian, actor, and writer who has written children's and adult books. He has starred in TV series such as The State, Ed, and more.
