We as adults will get to vote November 4 for President. Why not give kids a chance to vote for their favorite storybook characters this month too? Pick some story characters as your candidates, make a poster, set up a display with your bookmates and/or books (remember I’ve an office full of bookmates (stuffed storybook characters) that am willing to loan for any displays), put a box and some voting forms, and let kids vote! You could even ask them to show their library card in order to vote. Present your results on November 4. Thanks to the Cloquet Public Library blog for the inspiration!

Today’s SLJ Curriculum Connections talks about great election read alouds that we can present to our young patrons through storytimes and displays this month. Check that out too.
