    Great Story!

    I came across this book in B&N recently, and I fell in love with it. The story is compelling, and even though I'm an adult, I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. Not only does it teach about fairness, it also explains the Electoral College to children. I highly recommend this book!

    Highly recommended

    My six year old daughter loves this book. The illustrations are adorable and it's a fun story. It's also educational. It emphasizes voting for candidates because they listen to the people, have good ideas, and demonstrate good deeds, as opposed to voting for candidates because they are popular or look like the voter. It also explains the electoral college in a way that is easy for anyone to understand.

    Grace for President by Kelly DiPucchio and LeUyen Pham

    Kelly DiPucchio's first book, Bed Hogs was published in 2004. Though she may seem fairly new at publishing, she is a wonderful author who writes in an attractive style for adults and children of all ages. With all of her books, she seems to be paired with wonderful illustrators.<BR/><BR/>In Grace for President, a young girl, Grace, learns that there has never been a female president in United States' history during a class lesson. She decides she will be first, and immediately starts her campaign in the school's mock election. Grace realizes this will be a tough race because Thomas Cobb is running against her. He is popular and great at everything he does, and seems to have all the male votes. Grace decides she can only concentrate on being the best person and proving she will follow through on promises made before elections. Who do you think will win the presidency?<BR/><BR/>I think this is an excellent way to introduce not only our American electoral system to children, but also the value of hard work, courage, and independent thought. It is a very inspiring story that includes a lesson on how to make the right decision when choosing our leaders. I believe the best audience for this would be around third or fourth grade, and both genders, who can actively participate in their own mock elections and do well at making predictions and explaining the reasoning behind them.

    Highly recommend

    I read it with my two 5th grade social studies classes and they totally got the electoral college voting. Made more since to them than most adults :)
