221354Regular price $10.99
A fascinating look into Americaâ€™s voting history that will inspire young people to get involved!
This young readersâ€™ edition of Thank You for Voting, from debut author and journalist Erin Geiger Smith, presents its information in clear, interesting chapters. Broken into three sectionsâ€”The Stories of How We Got the Vote, Know Before You Vote, and How to Get People to Voteâ€”this is a book that will appeal to kids 8 to 13 who are politically engaged. But it will also help a middle grader who is more focused on just finding good resources for history and social studies reports.
Voting is a privilege and a right, but it hasnâ€™t always been for many people. From the founding fathers to Jim Crow to womenâ€™s suffrage to gerrymanderingâ€”and everything in betweenâ€”readers will get a look at the complex history of voting and become empowered to ask BIG questions like:
â€”What can I do to support my favorite leader?
â€”Who can I talk to about the issues I believe in?
â€”How can I make a difference in my community?
Every citizen has the right to vote. Let each one count!
