Milton Terrace South Elementary School in New York state conducted their own election this month. Under the direction of their school media specialist, Susan Penney, the 3th, 4th, and 5th grade students in the gifted classes researched the current books in the White House library. They found very few for soon-to-be White House residents, Malia and Sasha Obama, President-elect Barack Obama’s two daughters.
Each grade at Milton Terrace South Elementary School nominated two of their favorite children’s books, and everyone in the school voted on the winning titles. 16 of the children’s books will soon be on their way to the White House.
