Not a bad overview of the election process in the United States of America, but switching from one kid narrator to another with no introduction was a bit perplexing, and many of the stories seemed to present the same information.

Told from the perspective of various future voters (cute!), Today on Election Day is a wonderfully informative book about all of the goings on around our nation on voting day. From ballots and voting booths, to presidents and senators, this book has it all. I really enjoyed reading this book with my class in the days leading up to the election in order to prepare my future voters for the big day. Although I will admit that there was a lot of new vocabulary in this book, I found that my students ...more

This book is a great book and has a great meaning behind it. This book would be a great book to use for 3rd grade when they talk about the role of voting citizens have. I would use this book for the anticipatory set to introduce the lesson. The book has rich language as well. Another reason I like this book is it is from the perspective of students there age on elections.
