My Vote Counts
Does it matter if you vote or not? If you are in certain states will it even matter? These questions are tackled in this spectacular book of why voting matters and we should use our freedom to vote to help make changes.
The text was very well done. I liked how the teacher character discusses how voting works and explained it in a way that a younger child could understand. I loved the example of choosing a book in class compared to voting. The pizza party analogy was great to explain how the electoral college works. I loved how the kids in the book took the initiative to talk to their family members about the importance of voting.
The illustrations were great. I thought they were colorful and a great style for a book dealing with politics. I appreciated the variety of cultures and families represented.
I read this to my six-year-old and three-year-old. My three-year-old liked the pictures, but it was a little long for her. It was a great length for my six-year-old, although it seemed to go a little bit over his head. I think it’s a great book to introduce the concept of voting in first grade and would be really excellent to study further in second and third grade. Age recommendation: Best for seven and eight-year-olds.
