I love these kinds of books and, more importantly, so does my toddler. Don’t get me wrong, we also enjoy the cutesy traditional bedtime stories, but Middle Brother already enjoys something meatier.
The Baby Loves series, in case you’re not familiar, is board books with age-appropriate education. This particular one, obviously, is about democracy. The illustrations are adorable and eye-catching, and the text is simple enough to break down for a toddler and keep him engaged.
I certainly wouldn’t advise all educational books all the time for this age group, but I like throwing one into the storytime mix every couple of nights, and this series does it so well. If you’ve ever wondered how to explain democracy to your toddler, Baby Loves Political Science: Democracy! is the answer you’ve been looking for.
