E is for Election Day is an A-to-Z tour of the American electoral process. The book breaks the process into parts, with pages like B is for Ballots, D is for Debates, T is for Term Limits, and the most important letter in the book, Y is for You! Children will learn that their involvement can make a real difference in their government.
This book could be adapted for use throughout the elementary grades, from first grade on up. Though it is somewhat lengthy, teachers could break it up into smaller chunks of the alphabet at a time. This book is ideal for teaching about elections and all of the aspects that influence them, and would be especially useful during an election year.
