Voting is so important.

There are a lot of great books - both kids and teens being published about voting and politics.

This is not an extensive list, but just a few of my favorites from this year's reading...

A great concept book (alphabet) about voting and equality. Great Rhymes. Diverse. Inspiring.
This book also includes a timeline.

Voting Rights in America. And how we still have a ways to go...

Lillian finally wins the right to vote in 1965 at the age of 101! Impressive. 

Kids helping to spread the word about voting and that every vote counts. Inclusive. Diverse.  And great illustrations.

While two opponents are battling each other, someone else sweeps in for the victory.
An interesting look at politics and the meanness that takes place.

Kamala Harris is still writing her American story (I loved that line - it gave me goosebumps.). A great story about fairness and justice against the backdrop of Kamala Harris's life and her achievements. I enjoyed reading more about Kamala Harris's life because I really like her. And I hope she's in the White House in the next few months.

Elizabeth Warren didn't seek political life - it came to her. I enjoyed reading more about her life. I really like her. I hope to see her much more in politics. A great picture book biography with bold and colorful illustrations.

200 years of fighting to vote. This is a really good nonfiction book about voting that includes women, women of color, and people of color. 

This book didn't pull any punches - as the history of women voting - it talked about suffrage, racism, and more. A great nonfiction book for kids. 

I love this YA book about knocking on doors and engaging in talks about politics. I would never be brave enough to do this, but I admired Jamie and Maya. I also loved reading more about their friendship.

On My list to still read:
