Children's LiteratureBeginning readers will become acquainted with the election process in this easy-to-read title from the ongoing "Rookie Read-About Holidays" series.

Each set of images/text features varied historical periods and balanced ethnic representation. Voting history, rights, responsibilities, methods, and equality issues are briefly introduced. Opportunities for student voting in classroom and school environments are reflected in the snapshots. Vocabulary and illustrations are repeated from the book's contents in "Words to Know." An index lists words and concepts presented. Young citizens can combine the simple basic election facts of this introduction with Vote! by Eileen Christelow. 2002, Children's Press, Ages 5 to 8.
