Donkey and Elephant are running against each other for an election. They go through campaigning, moving into negativity and (literal) mud-slinging until they reconcile their differences and await the election results. When neither of them win, they question results and then start all over again.

I received this book a fair bit before the election, and actually read it to a group of teachers over a zoom call. While we can all see the book's relevance to our country's current situation, the general consensus was that the name-calling got a little too carried away for their age group, and they would rather not have to read a book where they then have to follow-up with a lesson on manners and not using hurtful names.

That said, I think that for a little older group, this is an excellent jump into what goes on during our elections, because, let's face it, the name calling and mud-slinging don't show any signs of lessening up. Why did the campaigning devolve into that? What were the results? What might have been a better choice? The book does have a point, and a place in election literature. ( )

I received this book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

The first time I read this book, I wasn's sure I really liked it. I think the reason primarily was because I was still employing my adult brain to this picture book, being so fed up with the "real life" politics we are currently living through, that I just couldn't see the attractiveness of this book, with the "mud slinging" etc.

I read it again a little later, and I still wasn't ready to write a review. I let it lie for a couple of weeks, and picked it up again. This time, I really enjoyed it. The donkey and elephant representations, the unfortunate relatability of the scenarios in the book to real life, and then, at least in the book, that the tactics didn't work for the donkey & elephant. It was a nice way to basically show that when you are mean to others you won't necessarily win (too bad that wasn't what happened in real-life adulthood). In the end, in fact, they basically became friends. What a nice way to come together after not being nice ... to forgive each other. I wouldn't read this to really little kids, such as preschool, because I don't think it should be very relateable to wht they know...I'm not sure. ( )

I liked the idea of this book very much but the insults just got to me and lessened my enjoyment of the book. I wish authors would think about whether a parent really wants to expose their child to rude language. My kids are 6- and 8-years-old. I would prefer to read this to them when they get a little older. ( )

Vote For Me! is about a donkey and an elephant arguing over who people should vote for. My six-year-old liked it because he thought it was funny, and he liked that they made friends at the end. ( )

Interesting picture book for election year. Donkey and Elephant both want to win the election and aren't always nice to each other, good learning tool about playing fair. Who will win the election?
