SYNOPSIS

A Vote is a Powerful Thing cover: hanging red, white and blue banner with title, and five children underneath, with one child ready to drop a paper ballot into a ballot box.

Callie knows there’s a presidential election coming up, and people will soon vote to decide the country’s leader.

Her class is having an election too, about an issue that affects them all–the class field trip. Should they choose the cookie factory or the wilderness park?

Join Callie as she campaigns for the wilderness park she loves and learns how people have organized, marched, and protested for the right to vote. And find out how a vote–even just one vote–can make a difference!

Banner Ad: "A vote is a powerful thing...powerful enough to change the world!" Young girl is hanging a "Vote 4 Wilderness Park" poster on left side of banner, and book cover on right side of banner. Small button with "GRAB A COPY TODAY!"
