From School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This title shows children participating in the electoral process as "future voters" while their school is made into a polling location and their relatives participate as both new and veteran voters. Expressive watercolor sketches depicting cheerful students give the book flair. The text is readable and upbeat. Several students narrate, offering a brief history of voting rights, discussing what it means to be class president, and sharing stories about relatives who vote or run for office. The alternating narrators and the inclusion of a plethora of events make the text occasionally hard to follow. It is also printed in a small font size. Ultimately, though, this is a welcome purchase, especially in an election year.-Jenna Boles, Washington-Centerville Public Library, Hunterville, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.

HEAT RATING: NONE(CHILDREN'S BOOKS)
REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Review courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
I feel this book is an important piece to the education of our young future voters. Share it with them today before our voting takes place in November. Remember your vote will help make history in our democratic country.
Really terrific illustrations in this book, explaining election day activities to young readers.
But... America is NOT a democracy.
The book reads, "America is set up as a democracy. That's a system of governing that allows citizens to choose their own leaders." This is false.
America is a republic, a system of government in which elected representatives govern to protect minority and individual rights. The founders set it up this way on purpose, knowing that democracy is the absolute power of the majority over the minority and individuals.
It's sad that such a great book gets this wrong.
