If you’re trying to help your little ones make sense of U.S. government and the electoral process, Peter and Cheryl Barnes’ books make a great starting place. To help you build your collection, this month’s giveaway is for a copy of Woodrow, The White House Mouse. This artfully-illustrated tale is perfect for introducing younger children to the electoral process and the role of the President. Beginning with the words, “Every four years, like the rest of us do, The mice of the nation elect someone, too,” this book is part fiction, part fact, and wholly enjoyable.
