5 children's books by US politicians

2. "My Senator and Me: A Dog's Eye View of Washington, D.C.," by Edward M. Kennedy

In 2006, Sen. Kennedy published a kid’s guide to the political process, as told by his real-life Portuguese Water Dog, Splash. “My Senator and Me: A Dog’s Eye View of Washington, D.C.” takes young readers to a typical day in the Senate, and describes how a bill becomes a law in simple terms. The affectionate canine narrator rides the underground tram between the Senate and the Capitol, then attends a press conference, a committee meeting, and a floor vote – stopping along the way for a game of catch, of course.

Although “My Senator and Me” is the late Massachusetts senator’s only picture book, he did publish several other works, including his posthumous memoir “True Compass” in 2009.
