If I Ran for President is a step above the usual election books, both in content and entertainment value. In the book, six children take turns explaining the election process as if they were running for president--discussing their decision to run, campaigning, primaries and conventions, debating, being interviewed, meeting the public, voting, and being sworn in on Inauguration Day.
Author Catherine Stier does a good job of explaining election details, both in an introductory note about electoral votes and in the text itself.
