Voting Time is Here...Part 2



So last time the Kindergartners met Duck, this time they were introduced to Squid!


This guy is from President Squid by Aaron Reynolds and he is a hoot. He also wants to be President. He even lists all the great qualities that will make him an awesome President.

It's getting tough, the Kinder friends will have to vote next week for who they feel will make the better President.

Tune it to find out who wins.
