We really enjoy and recommend the Baby loves series. However, the more recent ones, including this book about democracy seem to target slightly older kids than the earlier books. Even though she is only 8 months, our little one enjoys when we read longer books to her as long as it is simple enough (e.g. rhymes, rhythm, repetitive, easy language, interesting sounds/funny voices) - she likes when we read from the baby loves series Coding, Thermodynamics and a couple others. But when we read this (or from the equally complicated baby loves the senses), she starts slapping the book away after not even half the book.
I think with these more difficult concepts in the newer books of the series and more complex language, they should have developed a sub-series called toddler loves or something like that to indicate that it addresses slightly older kids. I kept the book since I'm sure there will come a time when she likes it but that is probably years away. I actually think, the age this book targets, might even only be once they outgrow board books. Because of this, only the 4 stars.
The book itself however is very nicely done and informative, with very cute illustrations - like all the other baby loves books. So I would recommend it but maybe only after you see that the earlier baby loves books seem to be too simple for your little one.
I love this author and my son loves the illustrator. He really enjoys all these books. The author does such a great job of breaking down bigger concepts for babies it's amazing! I strongly recommend all our books.
We were looking for a nonpartisan way of describing elections to our four year old. I loved how this book showed how one can be involved with a campaign and that no matter who wins- they represent everyone! I also loved the representation in the book!
From the author of the amazing Baby Loves Science series, comes this board book about how democracy works. Nonpartisan, it shows how even young children can participate in democracy, from coloring signs to bringing cookies to a meeting. A must read for our future generation of voters and leaders.
In Baby Loves Political Science: Democracy, Baby learns in very easy language how the United States elections work. Spiro is an expert in explaining complicated topics for the very young. As a kindergarten teacher, I think it’s also perfect for my students. In this story, it’s Election Day, and even Baby helps out by making signs for a rally. Paprocki’s adorable illustrations will make little ones pick this book up.
The youngest readers will love following along with Baby as she colors signs, shares cookies, and cheers on voters in this fun board book. The bright, colorful illustrations will keep your little one engaged during story time, and parents/caregivers will enjoy reading about this important process with their children.
