Civics lessons are always timely, always important, and often very complicated. And despite the easy banter in today’s media, many adult Americans are still in the dark when it comes to knowing their rights and responsibilities as citizens of a democratic society. So how do we help our youngest citizens to understand this important information in ways that make sense? This streamlined ABC approach uses poetry and colorful artwork to explain the basic building blocks of America’s democratic system of government, from its earliest beginnings to how it works in today’s world. From amendments and elections to Congress and our Constitution, E is for Everyone! Every Vote and Every Voice: A Democracy Alphabet helps make our system of government understandable for young readers.
I received a copy of this picture book from Sleeping Bear Press in exchange for an honest review.
“E is for Everyone! Every Vote Every Voice” by Elissa Grodin is a terrific alphabetical look at the democracy of the United States. Each letter represents a different aspect of the United States. Readers learn key terms and definitions like Bill of Rights, House of Representatives, The Nations Capitol, and many more. The illustrations by Victor Juhasz are done in a unique cartoon style with bright colors and detail. The back of the book has more information about democracy. This is a perfect book to use in the classroom for any civics or government lesson.
