If I Ran for President


IF I RAN FOR PRESIDENT; Catherine Stier; Morton Grove, IL: Albert Whitman, 2008; unpaged. Non-fiction.
After a visit to Mount Rushmore, six schoolchildren imagine what it might be like to run for president. Ms. Stier takes these bright-eyed kids completely through the campaign process with each taking a part--Ellie hands out fliers, Ben assembles a campaign staff, Sam participates in televised debates, and Claire eats popcorn with voters in Kansas. This simple text with bright pictures should be helpful for parents to show their children what an election year is all about.
