Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter - Sheilah Egan (Children's Literature)

"Humor abounds in this presentation of the basics of the history of the democratic voting process in governmental politics. Topics covered are listed in the table of contents and include: "Seeds of Democracy," "The African American Struggle," "Women Win the Vote," "What Are Political Parties?" "Choosing Candidates," "Crazy Campaigns," "Campaign Challengers," "Election Day," etc. Insets provide definitions and other tidbits of interesting information. The word ballot comes from the Italian word "ballotta" because in 13th century Italy, "people used small balls to cast their votes." A variety of methods of casting ballots is covered, including using beans and corn kernels. Other fun facts help keep the information from being too dry; the high interest factor is demonstrated with unusual information, such as the fact that there have been animals "elected" as mayor in several U.S. towns. The cartoon speech bubbles, often with current references such as Arnold Schwarzenegger referring to himself as the "govenator," provide comic relief for the amount of factoids packed into this title. Women's Suffrage and The Civil Rights Movement are not stinted. The back matter includes a time line, a glossary, a "read more" section, a Fact Hound Internet site, and an index." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter
