Election time is confusing for many adults, so it can be difficult to help your kids understand all that is involved in the election process. After reading books about voting, my kids have a much better understanding of the election process. When they see campaign signs beside the road or hear things about election results, they know a little bit more about the process from books like these.
The election season is usually a confusing time for everyone, so help your kids understand what the process should be like. Don’t forget–kids of all ages (adults included) benefit from a good picture book! Plus, who couldn’t use a good laugh during this stressful time–Duck for president?
Scroll all the way to the end of this post for a freebie! Our activity pack will provide a good start to a president unit study.
