Looking for a fun, light introduction to the campaign process? Join the brothers from the How Not to . . . series as they navigate a class election! Third grader Will couldn’t care less about boring school politics. But when his friend Chelsea proposes a Reading Buddy program that would require Will to hang out with the kindergartners (and therefore his little brother, Steve), he makes an impulsive decision to run against her! Supportive brother that he is, Steve takes full responsibility for managing his brother’s campaign . . . and things quickly spiral out of control.
This fun reader gently teaches what it means to be a responsible politician, and even gets some election basics into the mix. A hilarious tool to kick off classroom units on elections!
Step 4 Readers use challenging vocabulary and short paragraphs to tell exciting stories. These books are for newly independent readers who read simple sentences with confidence.
