Summary, etc.:
"Eleanor Roosevelt published the original edition of When You Grow Up to Vote in 1932, the same year her husband was elected president. This new edition has updated information and back matter. Beginning with government workers like firefighters and garbage collectors, and moving up through local government to the national stage, this book explains that the people in government work for the voter. Fresh, contemporary, and even fun, When You Grow Up to Vote is the book parents and teachers need to talk to children about how our government is designed to work"-- Provided by publisher.
