Its elections at Camp Pootie-ChoSapo for President is an important book that will teach young Liberian children about the importance of their vote, from candidates to debate, from the ballot to voting.In order to teach the campers about selecting a leader, Mr. Bayogar decides to do a mock election. Sapo is running against Bendu and the campers have to cast a vote for the best candidate. What do you do when you are best friends with both candidates?Hopefully, Liberian children will come away with a better understanding of the complex election-process, enduring respect for it. If you run for president, you would have to do a lot of hard work. You would study Liberia's problems, tell the Liberian people about your plans, select a running mate, and debate your opponents so the Liberian people will get to know if you are the best choice for Liberia.
