My favorite new picture book is I Need My Own Country! by Rick Walton. A little girl gets fed up with her brother and decideds she needs to create her own country — planning out everything from its name, flag, rules, and “other national things.” Part of being the President of her own country involves brokering peace with little brothers who bring chocolate cake, and changing the rules to make him part of her country, too.
