Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title is an ideal introduction to voting for young readers, or even for adult immigrants who are just learning how to read English. "Voting makes people a part of government," this slim book explains. The USA is a democracy, which means "people have the right to choose their leaders." Presidents serve for four years; most other leaders serve terms that last two, four, or six years. The history of voting in this country is mentioned, with African-American men winning the right to vote in 1870 and all women in 1920. Registering and eligibility are discussed, as are different kinds of ballots and how votes are counted. The Electoral College is explained under the headline "Amazing but True!" Sentences are short and clearly written, with only three or four per page. The photos show a good mix of types of people voting; politicians depicted include George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Ross Perot, and Bill Clinton. Included are a short index, a glossary (words in it are in bold in the text), a web address for finding related sites, and suggestions for further reading. This is part of the "First Facts/Our Government" series. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
