"Grace for President" by Kelly DiPucchio. About a little girl who is horrified to learn the US has never had a woman president, and decides to run for president at her own school.
Grace decides to run for president after learning that there's never been a FEMALE president. This picture book covers the American electoral system, but also teaches them the value of hard work, courage, and independent thought. And girl power!
This clever book does an excellent job in introducing to children an intuitive lesson in how the Electoral College system operates for electing the U.S. president, and how votes are allocated across states. This lesson is wrapped up in an exciting plotline, a spunky lead character, and bold, engaging illustrations. Grace for President is a valuable addition to any collection of children’s books that rank highly in both content and appeal.

Chasing Ice is a 2012 documentary film about the efforts of photographer James Balog and his Extreme Ice Survey to publicize the effects of climate change, directed by Jeff Orlowski. It was released in the United States on November 16, 2012.
