Although this is in a picture book format, the content is very grown up. It is a story about a young boy who teaches his father how to sign his name so that he can vote with pride in the Presidential election, instead of using his X to sign his name. This book would be a great way to talk about how women didn't have the right to vote and a teacher could build on this book to include who gets to vote today.
