Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Student council elections are always of interest to young readers. Enter Isaiah, an earnest kid who wants to run for third-grade student council. (It’s not exactly clear why Isaiah wants to run, but a fantasy bubble of him standing at a podium in a sharp suit may have something to do with it.) His friend Omar offers to lend his art skills to jazz up Isaiah’s campaign poster, but Omar goes too far when he suggests tearing down Isaiah’s opponent’s poster. The book is meant to be used in a teaching environment: in place of a satisfying conclusion, readers are faced with a glossary and questions, including “What do you think about Omar’s advice to take down the sign?” However, the clear narrative and appealing artwork—not to mention the welcome introduction of two minority protagonists—will resonate with anyone who’s ever hoped to win a vote. Grades K-2. --Daniel Kraus
