for Votes of Confidence by Jeff Fleischer
Every four years, coverage of the presidential election turns more into a horse-race story about who's leading the polls and who said what when. Younger readers, who might be old enough to remember only one or two other elections, aren't provided with much information about how the election process actually works, why it matters, or how they can become involved. With civics education becoming less common in schools, it's important for teens to know what's going on. Using a fun, casual voice and interesting sidebars and anecdotes that tell stories rather than just list facts, this book will provide teachers with a supplemental resource and readers with an engaging way to better understand their government.
