Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids' Letters to President Obama

Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids' Letters to President Obama

A few days after President Barack Obama was elected as the 44th president of the United States, kids from all over the country were asked to send him letters giving him advice, making requests, and just generally being cute and hilarious. I am totally getting Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids' Letters to President Obama, and I think you should, too! Here are some particularly funny and touching excerpts:

  • "Dear President Obama, I want to tell you hi. Do you work with Santa Claus?" — Sergio Magana, age 5, San Francisco
  • "Dear President Obama, I think you should get a Labradoodle and name it Soñador (it means "dreamer" in Spanish) . . ." Lydia Sumner, age 10, Seattle
  • "Dear President Obama, I really hope you put America back together. No pressure though." — Sheenie Shannon Yip, age 13, Seattle
  • "Dear President Obama, When you are president, don't eat junk food. Junk food makes you fat. Your family shouldn't eat junk food, either, because it is not healthy. Obama, you rock." — Amy Ramirez, age 8, San Francisco
  • Enjoying these? Well why not

    .

  • "Dear President Obama, I know you want to save the earth, but people don't want to clean. . .I always dream of cleaning the world with you. . ." — Stephanie Gonzalez, age 7, Los Angeles
  • "Dear President Obama, You should not smoke when you are president! There are simple reasons. Because you will die by smoking, and then you will not be president! But I want you to be . . ." — David Lopez, age 7, Los Angeles
  • "Dear President Obama, I have a great idea for you: you should set up a special phone, a special place just for kids to call the president if they find things that are dangerous and can affect people, like someone smoking. This would be a special place for kids to talk to Barack Obama and let him know what's going on." — Dhamaril Nunez, age 9, Boston
