Comedian and actor Michael Ian Black has written a political primer for your kids on the rise of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Called A Child’s First Book of Trump, he spoke to to Stephen Colbert about it on The Late Show.
“This is a field guide to, if you were to see a wild Trump out in the woods, what you should do, how you should behave,” said Black.
He shared a few lines from the book, which he said was for children who “don’t scare easily.”
The beasty is called an American Trump.
Its skin is bright orange, its figure is plump.
Its fur so complex you might get enveloped.
Its hands though are, sadly, underdeveloped.
A Child’s First Book of Trump comes out next month. Get your copy here.

What do you do when you spot a wild Trump in the election season? New York Times bestselling author and comedian Michael Ian Black has some sage advice for children (and all the rest of us who are scratching our heads in disbelief) in this perfectly timely parody picture book intended for adults that would be hysterical if it wasn’t so true.
The Trump is a curious creature, very often spotted in the wild, but confounding to our youngest citizens. A business mogul, reality TV host, and now…political candidate? Kids (and let’s be honest many adults) might have difficulty discerning just what this thing that’s been dominating news coverage this election cycle is. Could he actually be real? Are those…words coming out of his mouth? Why are his hands so tiny? And perhaps most importantly, what on earth do you do when you encounter an American Trump?
With his signature wit and a classic picture book style, comedian Michael Ian Black introduces those unfamiliar with the Americus Trumpus to his distinguishing features and his mystifying campaign for world domination…sorry…President of the United States.
