Voting With a Porpoise by Russell Glass and Sean Callahan, Illustrated by Daniel Howarth
We all know we should vote. We also know we should teach our children to vote. The book Voting With a Porpoise by Russell Glass and Sean Callahan, Illustrated by Daniel Howarth, was intended to do that, but it falls short of the mark.
This book does not teach about learning the issues for oneself and understanding where the candidates stand.
We live in a representative republic. This means we elect officials to make laws for us. If we do not understand the issues and where each candidate stands on those issues, our vote is dangerous. The book needs to teach children that, yes, they should vote but, they should understand what they are voting for and why.
Voting With a Porpoise can be used as a teaching tool, but parents and teachers should use it as a way to start a conversation about what voting actually means and the importance of the vote itself.
