Blogging assignment: Review (with giveaway) first ever story book for preschoolers explaining voting and democracy (UK bloggers)

Please tell us about the product or company you would like the blogger’s help with?

Fisherton Press is a new independent children’s book publisher. Our first book, The Election, comes out in January 2015. It’s a picture nook for pre schoolers that introduces children to the concepts of voting, elections and democracy.

In the story, Alex’s family supports the party with stripes on its posters. Evie’s family supports the party with spots on its posters. Only one party can win, but Alex and Evie manage to stay friends anyway.

Beautifully illustrated by Marek Jagucki, with words by Eleanor Levenson, the book was funded by the crowdfunding website Kickstarter with funders including elected representatives from all the major political parties in the UK, and members of the public.
