What Does Bookroo Think of Go Vote, Baby!

“Not actually about voting . . . but a good reminder to provide children with choices.”

Go Vote, Baby! takes little readers through a series of familiar everyday scenarios (e.g. “What do you want to play with?,” “How do you want to be tucked in?”). For each scenario, the book presents the question along with an illustration of a smorgasbord of possible alternatives on the left-hand page, and then encourages them to choose which of two options they prefer by sliding a green check mark piece on the right-hand page (twice). While it does introduce the littlest hands to the broad idea of voting (choosing between two options), with its red, white, and blue, star bedazzled cover and title Go Vote, Baby!, one might assume that the book would address actual voting at some point . . . but such readers will be disappointed. While the parallels between making everyday minor choices and voting are addressed, the differences never are, making this perhaps more suited to remind parents to offer choices to children in encouraging independence than it is to rally the next generation of civic-minded voters. The illustrations are cute, but not particularly noteworthy.

What's Go Vote, Baby! About

Publisher Summary

A fun, sturdy novelty board book with 13 sliding doors!

Toddlers will love casting their vote as they “slide-and-vote” in everyday situations like striped or polka dot socks in the morning, vanilla or chocolate ice cream at snack time, and many more exciting choices every kid faces throughout the day.

This sturdy board book is a great way to encourage toddlers to always cast their votes, despite how ordinary or tiny the decision may seem!

4.25 / 7.0

This board book could be a fun introduction to the idea of voting–toddlers can “cast a vote” on each page, making choices about simple elements of their day. It doesn’t address larger ideas about voting (like making choices for the welfare of the group or choosing what you think is right), but sticks instead to simply expressing preferences. Regardless, it’s a fun idea for a book and allows little ones to practice making choices all on their own!
