Duck for President - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

When reading about this book on scholastic the summary they gave was, "When Duck gets tired of working for Farmer Brown, his political ambition eventually leads to his being elected President.

My fellow Americans:

It is our pleasure, our honor, our duty as citizens to present to you Duck for President. Here is a duck who began in a humble pond. Who worked his way to farmer. To governor. And now, perhaps, to the highest office in the land.

Some say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he is a duck.

We say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he will be the next president of the United States of America.

Thank you for your vote". I have never read this book, but I have heard some wonderful things about it even more so recently with the election. I would use this book in a 2nd-3rd grade classroom to teach students about presidents and voting. This would be great to read during the election or even during social studies as well. I also think a mock election would be a great activity to do as a class after reading.

E Is for Election Day - Gloria M. Gavris,Shawn Mccann

This a great book that teaches children about different political terms through each letter of the alphabet. This would be a great story to read to students during the election season. This could be a way to introduce to them the election process and allow them to have something to vote on, whether classroom or school wide.

Werewolves Don't Run for President
Werewolves Don't Run for President - Debbie Dadey,Marcia Thornton Jones,John Steven Gurney

Grade: 5th

 

This book is such a good book to read aloud to the class. The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids books really intrigue students with their humor, illustrations, and interesting titles. We will read this book between Halloween and the Presidential Election. Students will design a poster of themselves that shows the class what they would do as the best candidate for president. We will learn about the Presidential Election and hold a mock election to see who the class will vote for for president.

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.
