Michael Ian Black | A Child’s First Book of Trump

Michael Ian Black, comedian and author of books for adults, children, and those in between, turns his quizzical eye on the confounding phenomenon that stalks the political scene with 'A Child’s First Book of Trump,' illustrated in classically whimsical style by Marc Rosenthal.

The Trump is a curious creature, very often spotted in the wild, but confounding to our youngest citizens. A business mogul, reality TV host, and now…political candidate? Kids (and, let’s be honest, many adults) might have difficulty discerning just what this thing that’s been dominating news coverage this election cycle is. Could he actually be real? Are those…words coming out of his mouth? Why are his hands so tiny? And perhaps most importantly, what on earth do you do when you encounter an American Trump?

In the Strand Rare Book Room, Black reads and discusses 'A Child’s First Book of Trump' with former literary collaborator, blogger and Fox News host Meghan McCain.
