Synopses & Reviews
From the author of the wildly popular Baby Loves Science and Baby Loves the Five Senses series comes a spinoff perfect for little citizens: Baby Loves Political Science!
Choosing a good leader is important, so everyone in America gets a say — even if they're too young to vote (sorry, Baby!). Sending postcards, making signs, and attending rallies is hard work, but with Baby's help, this campaign season is sure to be a success. This warm, inclusive primer demystifies the election process and emphasizes the importance of participation at all levels of government. Ruth Spiro's toddler-friendly, scrupulously accurate text and Greg Paprocki's bright, cheerful illustrations are sure to please and amaze the littlest activists among us.
"This nonpartisan introduction focuses on a mayoral race and depicts people making signs, sending letters, and going to a polling place....While this book will be well appreciated by traditional board book readers, it is also a great tool to explain this process to older children." School Library Journal
