Officer Buckle and Gloria vs. So You want to be President ?

I loved both of these books because they were both funny and very specific. If I had to pick one i would probably pick So You Want To Be President because it shows all the presidents and tells you all the good and bad things about being president. they are both incredible books and I am glad that they both one the Caldecott.
