He started as a volunteer in his community, then ran for town council, then mayor and then statewide office. Now he is in the race of his career, as he campaigns, debates, makes speeches, and meets the voters. Will he win the primaries? Will he win on Election Day? Will he become the nation’s “Big Cheese”? Cast your vote for Woodrow for President and find out!

This is the cutest book about the Presidential Election Process ever! The Barnes' have done it! Teachers should run to get this book and prepare for the fall to teach about the election as it draws closer! The way the book is set up, it goes through every step of the election process in a simple yet clear and complete manner. As a third grade teacher, I will use this book and many others written by the Barnes' to teach my class about the governmental process. I think that children will be amused and at the same time learn a great deal of political information! Enjoy!

I bought this book to teach my fourth grade students about government. All 25 listened silently while I read the book aloud. They even laughed at many of the puns. They seemed to have a better understanding of the election system after having read the book. I bought several others in the series. I like that they are kid friendly, accurate, and have AR tests to assess comprehension.

Format: Hardcover
A couple of weeks ago, a beautiful hardcover picture book called Woodrow for President arrived at my doorstep. I received this book by Peter and Cheryl Barnes as part of the TLC Tour Books. Immediately, I proudly showed off the cute and lavish picture book to my husband. Then I set down to read it. :-)

One of the quirks I've picked up as an adult is I prefer to first look in the children's section of the library when I want to know more about topic. Children's books give me the basics, and then some, without bogging me down with endless information. I especially appreciate that trait when it comes to topics that I'd otherwise never read about such as the electoral process. Through Woodrow for President, even though it is about a mouse and the United Mice for America, I gained an appreciation for exactly how many steps a citizen might undertake before running for president: sit on the town council, become mayor, get voted state governor, campaign in all fifty states, hold a primary election, compete in debates, attend a national convention, await nomination, work the campaign trail again, and finally hope to receive presidential election. Wow!

That said, I was still somewhat surprised that I liked Woodrow for President. As a teacher, I resent when information is disguised as a story. It's difficult enough to turn my students onto the joy of reading without force-feeding them facts. Make no mistake, the style in Woodrow for President is an informational one but Woodrow is such an easily likeable character, because of his valuing hard work, knowing right from wrong, and marrying the hometown girl. Okay, that makes him sound stiff, but he's nice and cute--and I liked him.

I found this book to be a great and timely one in this election year. Read this with our 5 and 7 year old boys, and the oldest was especially interested. What captured both boys were the drawing, they were really interested in finding the Presidential Seal...kind of like an Ispy.
As we traveled through the White House, the rhyming prose gives a look at the House and the Election Process. They rhyming is excellent and does not seem forced, and the Children stayed attentive.
The back of the book is for the Parents...filled with some interesting facts and resources. I also think that you can share some of the tidbits that are offered here with the children.
While the beautiful illustrations are sometimes small, after a teacher has read this to her class, the book could be passed around in single or in pairs to look them over and maybe find the Seals.
I actually would give this book a 4+ stars...found it so interesting and full of great facts.

I received this book from TLC Book Tours, and the Publisher Little Patriot Press, and was not required to give a positive review.

This is a really cute, educational book. I think this is a great way to teach kids about the political process. The book is all rhyming, so it is cute and keeps your attention. In the back, this book has resources for parents and teachers. These are great tools to use to talk to kids about this after reading the book. This is a great book as well as a great educational tool, and I will definitely be putting this one in my classroom.

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
