Duck for President by Doreen Cronin

Duck for President - Doreen Cronin, Betsy Lewin

An excellent book to read in the primary grades during an election year!  The author portrays the campaign trail and election process using farm animals and appealing illustrations.  This simple and humorous story introduces students to the different levels of government as well as the voting process.  What a fun book to read to students followed with a mock election in the classroom.  The students could choose candidates to run for offices, campaign, give campaign speeches, and vote for the best candidates.
