Wendy's World- What Is a President?
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Wendy was puzzled. Her class was going to have an election. They would elect a president for their class. Everyone got very excited. Wendy clapped and cheered. She didn't really know why she was clapping. What does a president do? Did she really want to be a president? She walked home alone that day. Her friends Tim and Tess had gone to the dentist.
 
2     When Wendy got home, she picked up an apple in the kitchen. She headed to her room. She got out her magic dice. She would try to find the answers to her questions using the dice. Wendy held the dice tightly in both hands. She said aloud, "What does a president do?"
 
3     Wendy didn't have time to put the dice down. She found herself in a strange room. There was a very large desk at one end of the room. There were pictures of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln on the wall. The same pictures were in her history book at school. She looked at the doors leading out into a rose garden. "Hello, Wendy," said a voice from a doorway behind her. "Welcome to the Oval Office. My name is Barack Obama. I am the President of the United States. You are my guest in the White House."
 
4     "Oh, my goodness," sighed Wendy. "I am sorry if I am bothering you. I know you are a very busy man."
 
5     "I always have time to answer the questions of young people," stated President Obama. "What can I do for you?"
