School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 Gr 4–6—These seven books thoroughly cover every aspect of the presidential election process. Readers learn how candidates raise funds, how primaries and caucuses are conducted, the history of voting, details of the Electoral College, and the history of presidential debates. All titles cover every important detail of their respective subjects in an objective manner. Colorful photos from recent elections enhance otherwise uninteresting narratives. Much information overlaps (for example, the Electoral College is featured in multiple titles). Given this is an election year, this series will be useful for reports and classroom discussions. VERDICT These timely titles will be of value during the election year, and individual volumes should be selected as needed. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
