Publisher Comments:

Using a townand#8217;s mayoral election as a model, this lively introduction to voting covers every step in the process, from the start of the campaign all the way to the voting booth. Thereand#8217;s even a recount! The cast of characters includes two dogs (and a cat), whose questions and comments mirror those of young readers and help to explain some of an electionand#8217;s more confusing aspects. Told with clarity and wit in Eileen Christelowand#8217;s signature comic-book style and vetted by an expert in voter education, this look at how we choose our leaders turns an often daunting topic into an exciting narrative. Who would have guessed that learning about voting could be so much fun?

A timeline of the history of voting in the United States, a glossary of words associated with voting, a discussion of American political parties, and a list of Internet resources are included.

Synopsis:

In a presidential election year, when selecting a new leader will be the focus of national attention, what could be more timely than an upbeat and informative introduction to voting? Eileen Christelows Vote! is now available in a special paperback edition at a bargain price, to give even more young readers the chance to understand the process.

Parties, voter registration, campaigns, rallies, debates, Election Day, even a recount . . . all are clearly presented in a graphic format as the story of a local election unfolds, with hilarious commentary by the candidates pets.

Choosing our own government is one of our most cherished rights. This book is the perfect guide to how our democracy works.
