【內容介紹】回最上方

With the next presidential election upon us, this witty, nonpartisan book will help explain the concept of voting to the youngest readers.

I Voted explains the concept of choosing, individually, and as a group, from making a simple choice: “Which do you like better, apples or oranges?”, to selecting a class pet, to even more complicated decisions, like electing community representatives.

You may not always get want you want, but there are strategies to better your odds!

Serge Bloch’s effortless and charming illustrations paired with Mark Shulman’s funny and timely text create a perfect resource for discussing current events with your children.

Backmatter includes information about the United States electoral process.

A Junior Library Guild Selection!

“The hows, whys, and wherefores of voting are presented in this picture book…. Bloch’s illustrations, dominated by people delineated in sketchy black outlines filled with simple patterns or color shades, emphasize expressions rendered in a cartoon style, and this adds a needed bit of levity to it all…. Comprehensive and forthright.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Bloch’s balletic ink line—punctuated with color washes and textural elements in red, white, and blue—and Shulman’s crisp prose means there’ll be no sleeping through this civics class…. A simple volume with a vital message: ’If you don’t vote, you don’t get to choose.’”— Publishers Weekly

 

每次選舉前,鬧哄哄的活動和議論中,你是否聽見孩子的這些疑問──
「什麼是選舉?競選活動都在做什麼?投票完以後會發生什麼事?支持的那方輸了,應該要怎麼辦?」

這本繪本用最平易近人的方式,帶孩子從生活事例看懂投票和選舉。先從孩子喜歡的食物開始,點出選擇和投票的關聯,接著延伸到當大家必須一起做選擇時,要如何表達想法、爭取支持、仔細衡量資訊,並以理性接納結果。最後再利用同樣的核心概念介紹大人的選舉,同時也告訴孩子即使沒有投票權,還是有自己參與的方式。書末並附有臺灣選舉方式及政府組織的相關介紹,讓孩子更清楚選舉前後可以關注那些事。

有一天,孩子也會行使這項民主國家的基本公民權,做出影響這塊土地公共事務樣貌的決定。正因為投票是眾人的事,跟我們息息相關,從生活中向孩子舉例其實一點也不難解釋!不管家長教師在選舉中支持誰,都可以用這本書告訴孩子,大人到底在忙什麼,而孩子也有自己參與的方式。培養民主素養,就從生活開始。

別忘了,每次投票,我們都在實現民主政治最重要的價值!
