Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
This picture book, by a husband and wife writing/illustrating team that specializes in educational books for children, traces the ascent of one extraordinary mouse from humble beginnings to become the nation's "Big Cheese". Many such puns are found in both the illustrations and the rhyming text of this story, subtitled "A Tail of Voting, Campaigns and Elections." Young readers learn how hard-working Woodrow G. Washingtail rose through the ranks of elected office, starting first as civic-minded business mouse and ending up as governor of Moussouri--now a candidate for president of the United Mice of America! The story gives an overview of campaigns, debates, political parties, primaries, the election process and the importance of civic participation. Emphasis is given on registering to vote at age eighteen. A reproducible "Contract to Vote" between America's children and adults is included at the back of the book.
