So, this election. It’s been one for the books. Or one we just want to erase from the books.

Election day is coming up in less than a week, and it’s a good time to discuss how elections work with your kiddos. Beezus and I are working through Notgrass Exploring Government this semester. It’s a good place to start with the middle/high school set. But the election process and even the history of voting can be a little bit confusing to the younger readers. Today, I want to share some great election books for younger kiddos.

Are you confused, too?

Elections can be confusing and stressful for even the most informed of adults, so imagine how your 8-year-old feels! She hears snippets of news reports and opinion from people around her, and it can be a scary and confusing subject.

Most children understand what a vote is. From the time they are small, we give our kids choices. Hamburger or chicken nuggets? Red or green? This shirt or that one? But voting is a little more complicated than that when it comes to electing our president and other government officials. So I’ve chosen 10 kid-friendly books to help explain this convoluted process.
