Vote For Me by Ben Clanton
So this is one that may not REALLY be intended for kids but.....adults will get a kick out of it (or maybe high school/middle school students). See if you can put it together....a DONKEY and ELEPHANT are both running for office, the Big Cheese to be exact. As these things sometimes do, it gets to be a little, well, heated with mudslinging (literally). See why you might want to use this with older kids?? I laughed through the whole thing, knowing what I know....but the 4 year old thought it was funny because even he knew that the elephant and donkey were not being "nice"! And in the end....the INDEPENDENT MOUSE won.....if only it was that simple!
