With all the talk about the upcoming election, your library would like to extend an invitation for you to use materials such as those highlighted below to help educate our children on this important civic duty.

“I Voted: Making a Choice Makes a Difference,” by Mark Shulman


With the next presidential election upon us, this witty, nonpartisan book will help explain the concept of voting to the youngest readers.

"I Voted" explains the concept of choosing, individually, and as a group, from making a simple choice: "Which do you like better, apples or oranges?", to selecting a class pet, to even more complicated decisions, like electing community representatives.

You may not always get want you want, but there are strategies to better your odds!

Serge Bloch's effortless and charming illustrations paired with Mark Shulman's funny and timely text create a perfect resource for discussing current events with your children.

“What are Political Parties?” by Joyce Jeffries

Division along political party lines has become an issue that concerns many in the United States, but it is not a new problem. As readers explore the history and current landscape of political parties, they learn the reasons why political parties formed, what different parties stand for, and what can bring people from different parties together. The detailed main text, which is enhanced by fun fact boxes and full-color photographs, supports social studies curriculum topics. A detailed graphic organizer encourages young people to look beyond political differences and to embrace ways to become active citizens.
