Storytime with Bobby Jindal
Duck for President by Doreen Cronin. Illustrations by Betsy Lewin. 2004.
What happens in this story is the duck doesn't want to do his chores on the farm so he runs for local office and wins. But he doesn't really want to do the work of that office either so he runs for Governor. Of course he doesn't much care for doing that job either and.. well.. stop me if you've heard this story before.
In the end he lands a book deal so it all works out.. for him, anyway. We don't learn whether or not anyone got anything out of voting for him. Maybe that's beside the point, though. We're still figuring that part out.
Here's a video presentation of the read-aloud.
And here is a link to a series of creepy surveillance videos where we seem to be peeping in at the Jindal family as Bobby tells the kids a certain version of the same story.
