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.

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.

Explaining the electoral process to young children can be a difficult thing to do. This book does a nice job of helping readers understand what running for president requires. The descriptions are of course simplified and idealized. If only elections were this neat and tidy. But all the major steps are included: political parties, conventions, campaigns, debates, voting, etc. I enjoyed the use of a mouse society to present the facts mixed with a story, this makes all the information easier to swallow. I also enjoyed the play on words, such as 'Moussouri' rather than Missouri. While the rhymes were occasionally forced, the content is just right for upper elementary students.

The illustrations are pleasant and quite detailed. The addition of the secret service agent to search for in the illustrations is fun. Unfortunately, while the detailed illustrations do a fantastic job complimenting the text, it makes the book hard to use as a classroom read-a-loud, unless the teacher has a document camera or can enlarge the pictures in some way. If that is the case there are many different things that could be discussed in terms of humor as well as the election information.

Reviewer received a copy of this book in return for an honest review. No other compensation was received. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

I appreciated the emphasis on 'public service' rather than the greed and power that sometimes seems to motivate candidates and his/her political party, not to mention the money that has come to play such a large role in the process. While this is idealistic, I believe it is an ideal well worth seeking. I recommend this book for parents and teachers who wish to help their young students to understand the importance of voting and participating in a democracy. The additional information at the back of the book about the major points included in the book is helpful in further explaining the text.

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.
