Five-year-old Liam loves to hear his grandfather, Pap, tell the story about when he was five-year-old Ricky. In 1949, Ricky’s father was the newly appointed Administrative Assistant for President Harry Truman.
One day, Ricky visited his father at the White House, and he met President Truman. While sitting on the president’s knee in the oval office, Ricky told the president that White House squirrels were too skinny. So, the president appointed Ricky Official White House Squirrel Feeder. Ricky felt important, and took his job seriously. And he became a good friend to the squirrels.
Based on true events, Squirrel Feeder, a picture book, tells the story about the friendship between a young boy and the President of the United States.
