    •Brief summaryThis book goes through the Election Day, and explains why adults goes to schools (and other places) on this day. It also explains why we vote i this country.It also talks about when women and African Americans couldn't vote. This book ends with what happens after the voting. Good informational book.•AudienceThis would be a good book for children in 2nd through 4th grade. Its probably to advanced for any younger, but could be used if a group of older children don't understand election day.•Appeal It is something that if it happens at your school children can relate to or answer questions as to why adults have the "I Voted Today" stickers. It has colorful pictures and an easy read to be understood by 2-4th graders. •Implementation I would use this book for history, and to help children understand why we have our leaders, and why children should care but it. They will have a say one day. Make children excited about being future voters. This book is also a good why to explain the different parties, and Amendment related to voting. Stier, C., & Leonard, D.

    2. The second nonfiction book I read was, “Today on Election Day” by Catherine Stier. The fiction book I paired with this is called, “I Could do That”, by Linda White. The nonfiction book is a trues story of how 6 different children got to experience election day with their relatives and one in particular, David, gets to go with his brother who will be voting for the first time. This book encourages US citizens to vote and helps to foster the importance that voting is a right that we should all embrace. The fiction book was a great pair because in this book a little girl wants to be just like her mother in many ways. However the time is in the mid 100’s when women were still not allowed to vote. This little girl takes it upon herself to win women the right to vote in the state of Whyoming. They both emphasize the importance to vote but while one works toward the goal of both sexes being allowed to vote, the other book states all the facts about voting when any sex can vote.

    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 were more than willing to learn from their fictitious peers, The kid-friendliness of this book makes it an election day "must read" for any 3-5 classroom.

    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.

    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.
