Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 Gr 3–5—Various aspects of U.S. elections are introduced to elementary school students in these age-appropriate volumes. Brief facts are included. Colorful pictures of recent presidential campaigns complement the text. The narratives are mostly factual, if not engrossing. Unfortunately, there are errors in Voting ("Election Day is always the first Tuesday of November in an election year") and Political Parties, which points out the Democratic Party was founded in 1828 then states that was more than 200 years ago. VERDICT Libraries should definitely pass on Voting and Political Parties. The other titles should be considered additional purchases. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
