    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    This is the best material we have found for teaching children about American elections.

    It covers all the bases on elections, like:

    What does the president do?
    eligibility for president
    presidential terms of office
    the electoral college
    presidential campaigns
    political parties
    political party conventions
    debates
    political advertising
    political polling
    rules for presidential succession

    And also gives fun facts throughout, like:

    the oldest and the youngest people elected president
    the four-term president
    the four people who won the popular vote but lost the election
    third-party candidates
    five sets of relatives who have become president
    first ladies
    nine vice presidents who became president without being elected president
    a list of the names, dates, a parties of all 44 presidents of the United States
    presidential birthplaces and most popular presidential birth-states

    Includes a good glossary (caucus, census, convention, debates, delegates...)

    HOWEVER...

    Page 7 claims "The United States is a democracy." THIS IS FALSE. The United States is a Republic. The American Founders created a Republic because they were familiar with the vices of democracy, most notably violent majority rule against the minority.

    5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dad of Divas TOP 500 REVIEWER on January 17, 2012
    Format: Paperback
    This was a great book, with so many interesting facts and figures. Especially in a year of a Presidential Election, having a book like this makes you that much more proud of the system of government that we have today. What I really liked about the book was that it made the whole election process so easy to understand for young readers. Too often this process can seem a bit confusing and daunting, but this book lays everything out in an easy-to-understand way. On top of that there were some very interesting facts that I appreciated that would allow you to wow your friends at your Presidential trivia! Overall, if you love history and government, this is a book that you will truly enjoy!
