Great concept getting kids interested in politics early, and here is a good top ten collection of political books compiled by author and veteran writer and TV producer, Rachel Ruiz – When Penny Met POTUS (President of the United States). Ruiz was inspired to write the book after working for President Obama in 2012, after her inquisitive then three-year-old daughter started asking questions about the president.
Readers are leaders and what better way to get young minds thinking than to equip them with political knowledge (Even if it is formatted in a way in which they can understand it).
