Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is crammed with information but still written in a way that children can understand. The book is organized to parallel the election process and includes the rules for the electoral college, the primaries, and campaigning. While there are succinct explanations and definitions of a caucus and the procedure for succession, there is also trivia, for example, the three pairs of relatives who have been president and the Chicago Tribune's announcement of Dewey's win. 2000, Barron's, $6.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Susie Wilde
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Just in time for this year's presidential election, this slim paperback offers clear, concise explanations of the constitutional rules for electing a president, the role of campaigns and conventions, the order of succession if a president dies, and lots of interesting tidbits of historical information about the presidents. Did you know, for example, that the term "first lady" was first applied to Lucy Hayes, wife of President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1877? The blue line drawings are adequate though not enticing; the chapter on the perennially confusing electoral college does not entirely clear up that confusion with its sidebar on candidates who won the popular vote, lost the electoral vote and therefore lost the election. The book includes a glossary, index and bibliography and would serve well as a supplement to social studies texts in upper elementary and middle school. 2000, Barron's Educational Series Inc., Ages 9 to 15, $6.95.
