Canada Votes: How We Elect Our Government
by Linda Granfield
Election day is coming up and soon we'll be off to the polling stations, sometimes with kids in tow. If your children are less than interested in the voting process, Linda Granfield's book will help. Canada Votes is an entertaining look at elections - when they're called and by whom, who can vote, who can run, and what happens after polling stations close. There's even interesting information about voter discrimination, election fraud, and the nomination process, with a bit of history thrown in. Cartoon illustrations (by Craig Terlson) add a funny, light-hearted touch.
