Bernie: Updated 2020 edition

We rated this book:


My parents are big Bernie Sanders fans, so that’s why I read this book. The cartoon on the cover is a little creepy looking! Some of the photographs in the book are creepy, too. Why do politicians always make that face, with their lips sticking out? I guess they are shouting. This book covers Bernie’s career from the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, in 1981 through his sixteen years as US Representative. In 2006, Bernie was elected U.S. Senator, and in 2016 he campaigned as a Democratic presidential candidate. This book uses long words that I didn’t know (like ‘capricious’) and some other long words that I know but don’t really understand (like ‘capitalism’). I think this is a good book if you want to understand why politics is important. It covers history that I’m too young to remember and that we are not taught in school. Mostly, this book wants to show an alternative to the political mess that we have right now (my parents’ opinion). In school, we’re told we can do anything if we work hard enough. Maybe we can work to make things better. I’m only twelve, but it sure looks like adults could use some help.
