Election time is here, even kids know it. You might be surprised at how much your children pick up from the television and conversations they hear from adults. They know what is going on and some even have good arguments for their candidate. Now is an excellent time to teach children the importance of voting.
Join author of children’s book, Let’s Vote! A Fruitful Election Tale this Sunday, July 17th at Loganberry Books in Shaker Heights, Ohio to give your child the chance to vote during an interactive story time and discussion on voting.

I was recently driving my kids and a few of their friends to the water park when the election came up. I was surprised at the comments that were being made but even more surprised at the thoughtful arguments that were made for each of their candidates. The youngest was 5 and the oldest was 11 and I must say they were all very passionate about their viewpoints. (It is easy to tell the position their parents take on candidates and how they talk about the opponents too!)
Kids want their voices heard, this fun event is the perfect way for kids to learn more about the proper way an election should be held and how to respectfully vote and encourage others to vote.
Let’s Vote! A Fruitful Election Tale Book Review
We started taking our children with us on election day when they were really young. It is good to teach children about the voting process and I feel like Anita Iaco’s new book, Let’s Vote! A Fruitful Election Tale is spot on.
It addresses some of the regretfully true aspects of elections today – unkindness, promises that can’t be kept, lies, and more. Don’t worry, this is all done in an effective, positive way to teach children how an election should be ran and how we should respond with our vote.
In, Let’s Vote! A Fruitful Election Tale, it is Election Day in Miss Jenn’s class. Students have the choice between 3 fruits to vote for as their official class fruit. Since fruit cant’ talk, three classmates must speak for them. Immediately the children start making promises that can’t be kept, spread lies to make their fruit look better, and other not-so-nice reasons why their fruit should receive the most votes. Miss Jenn teaches the children how candidates should act with honesty and integrity. In the end, the children learn a lot about voting as I’m sure your children will too. Maybe Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could learn a thing or two from this book as well!
Purchase your own copy of Let’s Vote! A Fruitful Election Tale at Loganberry Books this Sunday during the book reading and signing event. I hope to see you there!
If you can’t make it on Sunday, you can find the book at retailers nationwide and on Amazon.com.
