Reviews

"Children will come away with a better understanding of the complex election-process, and, just maybe, an enduring respect for it."
"This title is a step above the usual election books, both in content and entertainment value. Six children take turns explaining the election process as if they were running for president. They discuss their decision to run, campaigning, primaries and conventions, debating, being interviewed, meeting the public, voting, and being sworn in on Inauguration Day. Stier does a good job of explaining election details, both in an introductory note about electoral votes and in the text itself.... The author adds flavor by providing humorous examples, such as the need to smile despite indigestion.... The lively cartoons cheerfully clarify the action and reinforce the concepts. Libraries will want this kid-friendly title."

Booklist
"This is a campaign to yearn for, all issues and not a spin doctor in sight."
