The president of the United States is coming to visit Marvin's class. He's even going to answer one question from each kid! Plus the whole thing is going to be on TV. Marvin is nervous. What if someone steals his question? What if he can't speak when it's his turn? Will he look silly in front of the president and everyone watching?
