Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This title is a step above the usual election books, both in content and entertainment value."

School Library Journal "Children will come away with a better understanding of the complex election-process, and, just maybe, an enduring respect for it."

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

Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Imagine starring in commercials and traveling in your own campaign bus Or seeing your face on bumper stickers and T-shirts If you ran for president, you would get to do these and other fun things, but you would also have to do a lot of hard work. You would study the nation's problems, tell the American people about your platform, select a running mate, and debate your opponents on live television. Finally, in November, Election Day would arrive. You would keep your fingers crossed and wait for the results--will you be the next president of the United States? A multicultural cast of children imagines what it would be like to run for president. The entertaining yet informative text is a good conversation starter for discussions on the election process. A note about this process accompanies the story.
