“I don’t think you’re ever to young to learn about how society works. All children have a keen sense of what is fair and what isn’t and it’s easy to harness this along with their natural inquisitiveness to talk about why some people have opportunities and material goods and others don’t.”
The story is based around two children Alex and Evie. Alex’s parents support the Stripy Party and Evie’s the Spotty Party. No spoilers however, you’ll simply have to read the book to find out who wins.. The story uses simple language and child friendly illustrations to introduce key aspects of the election process including canvassing, voting and results night. The Election is a great conversation starter for parents and teachers to introduce political concepts to the future rulers of the world.
