Teaching the Election {Picture Books}



It's almost election-time, and my kids and I are including some neat presidential picture books in our read-aloud time.  It's amazing how much you can learn from what seems like a simple picture book, and these three are packed with facts and history.  Reading books like these with your kids is a sneaky way to get them learning civics and history
 and much more fun than a textbook.




I'm part of the review team at Home Educating Family, and this week, there are lots of good history and election-themed books being featured.  It's a great resource for building a reading list to take with you to the bookstore or library.
