Book Talk Tuesday

In just one week, our country will elect our next president.  Here are a few books to help you understand how the voting process works!

America Votes by Linda Granfield walks you through the entire voting process, including concepts like primaries, party conventions, and campaigns.  This book answers any question you might have about elections and also includes some interesting stories from campaigns and elections in our country's past.

In My Teacher for President by Kay Winters, Oliver is learning about the president's job, and the more he learns, the more he thinks that his teacher would be perfect for the job!  This book is funny and a great way to learn about what the president does every day.

Vote! by Eileen Christelow tells the story of a town's mayoral election, but it's a great source of information on all types of elections.  The two dogs who comment on the story help explain how voting works and what can happen during a campaign.
