The Election is the first ever story book that introduces preschool children to the world of voting, democracy and elections. Now, O’s Daddy is a bit of a wannabe politician and so he loved the idea of this!
The story is based around Election time where Alex’s parents support the stripy party, whilst Evie’s parents want the spotty party to be in charge. But only one party can win! Watching political debates on television, canvassing the local area, a trip to the polling station – it’s all explained brilliantly within this story.
I personally think that democracy and the reasons why we should vote are extremely important topics to teach our children. Eleanor Levenson, the Author of this book, has done a terrific job in using simplistic language to explain the political and voting process to small children and Marek Jugecki has brought the characters to life with modern illustrations.
When we have a new book to read, O sometimes loses concentration as he’s not familiar with the story – but not this one. O loved listening to The Election story book; pointing out the posters for the different political parties. He even managed to give me a summary after we’d finished reading of the storyline! Daddy is yet to read the story, but I’m sure he will love it just as much as O and I do.
The book is available to purchase on Amazon here at a price of £7.51 (pricing correct at time of publication).
