In simple rhymes, the Cat in the Hat introduces early readers to the concept and practice of voting, with a focus on the American presidency. Kids learn the basic principles of democracy, how political parties are formed, why Election Day is held in early November, and much, much more! An ideal choice for reading and talking about elections (whether it's choosing a classroom pet or the leader of the free world), this book is also perfect for supporting the Common Core State Standards. Fans of the hit PBS show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! will be delighted to see that the Cat knows as much about history and civic responsibility as he does about science.
