Books about elections, presidents, First Ladies, the Electoral College, women in politics and the White House are all on display and ready for check-out for all grade levels in the school library! Knowledge is power, and libraries are cornerstones of democracy...so come on in, kids, take a step toward good citizenship by reading a book!
In that spirit, we have been reading stalwart non-fiction about the process such as If I Ran for President and If I Were President, both by Catherine Stier. Our Stone smarties brainstormed their own qualifications for holding executive office in library discussion. Clearly, the are listening carefully to the news and to their parents' contemplations, and the children were also very respectful of one another's ideas. Let's hope we choose a candidate who embodies all of their good suggestions, and who will support their bright futures! Thank you for voting!
