For the Love of Voting

In a recent post, I shared that I’ve been a pretty enthusiastic follower of this year’s presidential contest. Whichever side of the political aisle you tend to lean toward, you have to admit that it has been a wild and fascinating ride thus far! And there’s no reason adults and older students should be the only ones who get to follow along with political events. Get your youngest readers in on it too with these excellent offerings from First Step Nonfiction:

I’m a big believer that our sense of civic duty and commitment to voting are formed when we are young. I’m passionate about exercising my right to vote, and I still remember my elementary teachers explaining why voting is such a privilege. I hope tomorrow’s future voters are fortunate enough to hear this same message—and it would be a tremendous honor if our First Step Nonfiction Exploring Government series played a part in that!
