This revised edition (updated through the 2021 inauguration) explains all about presidential campaigns and American politics--complete with stickers, activities, and a color-your-own Electoral Map!

Who can run for president? What's the difference between America's two major political parties? Why do candidates spend so much time in Iowa and New Hampshire? And is the Electoral College really a college?

This revised edition (updated through the 2021 inauguration) answers these questions and many, many more. From stump speeches to catchy slogans, debates to nominating conventions, and finally to Election Night and Inauguration Day, readers will learn all about what it takes to run for--and win--the most powerful job on earth.

Activities throughout prompt readers to think about the issues they care most about and consider what makes a good president, sparking discussion with friends and family. Includes a sheet of presidential bobblehead stickers and a color-your-own Electoral Map of the recent 2020 election!
