A Great Day at the Dallas Kids Read! Event 2012
In a celebration of Election Day and the election process, this just-released title features a classroom of “Future Voters” as they illuminate all that goes on from early morning to the late night hours on this all-important day. Kirkus Reviews calls it “A proudly buoyant tour of Election Day in the U.S.A.” while Booklist notes “Readers will learn what makes a candidate…how they campaign, and how voters can get information about them.” (For more of this review and a summary of the book, visit the Albert Whitman website at www.albertwhitman.com).
