Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country includes such advice as: "If I were president, I would help all nations, even Hawaii." Chad Timsing, age 9, Los Angeles "I really hope you put America back together. No pressure though." Sheenie Shannon Yip, age 13, Seattle "1. Fly to the White House in a helicopter. 2. Walk in. 3. Wipe feet. 4. Walk to the Oval Office. 5. Sit down in a chair. 6. Put hand sanitizer on hands. 7. Enjoy moment. 8. Get up. 9. Get in car. 10. Go to the dog pound." Chandler Browne, age 12, Chicago And, while it wasn't advice, exactly, we thought this was worth sharing: "You are just like a big me." Avante Price, age 7, Seattle "A hilarious and touching collection of letters compiled at 826 Valencia in San Francisco and the writing center's half dozen chapters across the country." -- San Francisco Chronicle "(Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country)... offers a moving snapshot of children's lives in the waning days of 2008." -- USA Today "A collection of childhood wisdom that just might make a difference in the difficult times ahead." -- MSNBC/ NBC Chicago "Preternaturally sagacious youngsters from 826 National's various tutoring centers across the country chimed in to the national dialogue with their advice, concerns and hopes for their new president." -- LA Times "With John as editor, Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: A Collection of Kids' Letters to President Obama has become a much-talked about project that, at its core, is really a child's perspective on the notions of hope, ideals and challenges facing the 44th president of the United States." -- Tahoe Daily Tribune
