Anika Noni Rose gives voice to young Grace Campbell, who, on viewing portraits of the United States' presidents, blurts out with indignation--"Where are the girls?" Without skipping a beat, her teacher explains calmly and invites the class to hold an election for their own president. Grace declares with conviction, "I'd like to be president." Another class submits a candidate, Thomas Cobb, and the campaign begins. And the winner is . . . ! Rose speeds and slows, travels her vocal register, and brings all the electricity, hopes and worries, and tension of the election to young listeners. Author Kelly DiPucchio concludes the production with an explanation of the Electoral College and popular voting. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
