The Citizen Baby series offers simple descriptions of the American presidency, Congress, Supreme Court and voting process. With a cast of black, brown and white toddlers and their corresponding adults, and at least one adult in a hijab in most of books (not in My Supreme Court), these will be relevant to many families. Bright, cheerful art, which appears digital, likens the institutions to things a small child will understand. The president is important, just like Mommy. In Congress, they don't ...more
This is a board book, and the narrative voice is literally speaking to babies, but it feels like it's aimed at adults?

Like, it's all cutesily aimed at babies with intent to be also appreciated by adults -- e.g., "When there's a town hall, you have to show up--even if it's past your bedtime. Candidates need to hear your voice." with an image of a crying baby held in a woman's arms at a town hall.

I dunno. It's grown on me some with multiple rereads, but I still feels weird to me? Like a less good

This sweet board book is part of a four-book series on the federal government for toddlers. While the concept is well done, the context will be over most toddlers understanding. The appeal may be more for the adult reader, as toddler’s development is just not there yet.

Parents looking for a simple way to explain voting to children might want to share this before they go to vote especially if they are taking young children with them.

I would recommend this book for purchase by any public library
Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.

This book focuses on the importance of being educated and exercising your voice in regard to politics. I liked how it used a baby and more friendly language to begin introducing these concepts to young children. Teaching them certain aspects of politics while their young is important so they grow up to be knowledgeable and free to make their own choices. I enjoyed how the illustrations depicted the text/information well.
The "story" is fun and flows well, and does a decent job at relating a mature topic for children.

Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this eARC via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review!
