Who's Going to Get Us Out of This Mess: First Girl President Mary America!

She’s an Orphan. She’s Smart. She’s the Leader of the Free World. And she’s 12. Meet Mary America, the first girl president of the United States. “She’s ready to serve and show us all a different perspective,” says award-winning author Carole Marsh about her newest character.

Go along on the first exciting adventure of MARY AMERICA: First Girl President of the United States as the chapters of Marsh’s newest children’s book unfold. An orphan, Mary America becomes the president at age 12, through a fluke in the law and a high IQ. You’ll also meet her grandfather, First Gramps, her pesky little brother, Josh, her Aunt Doo-Dah and her baby cousin, Prissy, among other interesting characters.

“This seemed like the perfect time for a book that helps children understand what a big job it is being president, while being entertained by how somebody their age would handle the job. I’m also passionate about subject matter that helps children dream big dreams,” Marsh adds. Each book includes great educational content for children 7 to 12 about the presidency, White House, how government works, diplomacy and much more, as well as teaching children about character traits such as integrity, dependability, responsibility, creativity, trust and friendship

As with all of Marsh’s children’s fiction titles, MARY AMERICA: First Girl President of the United States will have an assigned Accelerated Reader level, Lexile measure, Fountas & Pinnell level, and a DRA level – always important for parents and teachers.
