Review of Bad Kitty for President by Nick Bruel

Read for: Election Day!
Synopsis: "The votes are in--it's a Bad Kitty landslide!
It's time to elect a new president of the Neighborhood Cat Coalition! Who will win the election? The candidate chosen by the kitties on the right side of the street or the candidate chosen by the kitties on the left side of the street? When election time rolls around, one candidate (guess who?) will discover that she never bothered to register to vote and the entire election will be decided by a surprise, last minute absentee ballot sent by Old Kitty."

My Review: It is hard enough for us adults to understand the whole election process, never mind explaining it to children. Bruel really breaks it down nicely as Bad Kitty runs for president in her neighborhood. The book goes through the steps of running a good campaign (something adult candidates should read up on) as well as the electoral system and the voting process, and it is all done with a touch of humor. It is really a fun book to use in answering the questions that may be presented with this and future elections.
My Rating: This book really did a great job of simplifying the process (as much as possible anyway) and making it relatable for children. You can never start them learning about their own country too early. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
Don't forget to exercise your right and vote today!
