Vote for Me!


Product Description
Product Details


"Deftly written by Louise Spilsbury and charmingly illustrated by Mike Gordon. Fun illustrations, interactive panels, and informative sidebars throughout help young readers find out what it takes to become a leader--and how to get people to vote for YOU! Thoroughly 'kid friendly' in organization and presentation, "Vote For Me!" is very highly recommended for family, elementary school, and community library collections."
--The Midwest Book Review
"This book is an overview of what government is and how it works around the world. All different types of governments are covered: anarchy, monarchy, theocracy, dictatorship, totalitarian state, and democracy. Each is explained, including how it came about and some of its development throughout history. Different jobs of government are discussed and how these jobs work with the different types of government and in different places. The role of elections and the importance of getting involved are reviewed. There is also a section on student governments, becoming a student leader, and a section on foreign affairs. This book has a lot of information packed into its pages. It does an adequate job of explaining the concept of government to elementary age children so that they will understand the different types, what those types offer citizens, and how important it is for both a country and its people to participate in order to make the world a better place. Ample end paper content makes this a good choice for reports."
--School Library Connection (SLC)
From the Reviews:
"This friendly guide for middle schoolers covers the what, why, and how of governments and elections. The author discusses why governments are necessary and broadly covers how laws came into existence. Spilsbury describes several forms of historical and modern governments, their components (branches, ruling documents, etc.), and responsibilities. This information is conveyed in a conversational style and illustrated with numerous cartoons. Colorful text boxes supply specific examples of information covered. The final section encourages students to get involved in an organization, most likely student council. The gentle advice walks students through the campaign and election processes and ends with the assumption they are successful. They are then encouraged to get to work. VERDICT: A visually appealing introduction to a variety of governments--and a refreshing update for nonfiction collections."
--School Library Journal
