About the book: Pantsuits, Funny Ears and A Purple Lei pays tribute to the historical 2008 presidential contest between an African American and a woman. This children's story provides fun and lighthearted entertainment for both the young and young at heart. Although President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton's accomplishments are highlighted, the book focuses primarily on a day in the life of three young elementary school children Jania, Emily, and John. Political agenda and biography are avoided with emphasis placed on family, relationships, and working in a community garden. Jania's grandmother teaches the children the main message of the book: Find something you love to do, study, and work hard. Doing what you love will make you happy. Strong support for the viability of a future woman president is also given. Supplemental research projects help children learn more about gardening, community work, birdhouses, volunteering, and famous quotes. Jania offers her favorite recipes for minted carrots and basil tomatoes to encourage young people to experiment with fresh herbs. With liberty taken to poke a little fun at President Obama's ears and Secretary of State Clinton's pantsuits, both Obama and Clinton supporters are sure to enjoy Pantsuits, Funny Ears and A Purple Lei. From the back cover: Halloween is coming and there's going to be a costume party at school. Jania and her friends are trying to decide what to wear. John wants to be either a spider or a skeleton.
