It is spirit week at school, more specifically it is hole day and everyone in the school is wearing holes in their clothes, including the teacher and the principal. Marvin’s class learns that they are to have a surprise visitor that morning, the President of the United States. Mrs. North tells everyone to write down a question to ask the president. Several news people come in preparation for the president. Marvin is doing a math problem at the board when the president arrives. He has come to talk to the class about what it means to be a good citizen. The students all come up with good examples and then they are given an opportunity to question the president. Marvin asked what he should be doing now in order to be president in the future; the president tells him to keep doing what he’s doing: being a good citizen and working hard. Marvin hopes to be just like the president when he grows up.

It is "hole day" at Marvin's school, and everyone is wearing clothing with rips and tears. Mrs. North's shirt has a hole that shows her belly button! Now they learn that Marvin's class will have a special visitor--the president of the United States will meet with the third grade class. Marvin struggles to think of an original question to ask the president, and succeeds in attracting the president's attention. This is a quick read with lots of laughs. 1999 ( )
