Our mission at Votergy is to strengthen American democracy by getting young voters of all backgrounds to the polls.
As we were thinking longer term about how to talk to our young children about voting, we realized that there were no great resources out there. So we wrote one ourselves! Voting With a Porpoise is a children’s book designed to teach kids how elections and voting have the power to solve hard problems.
It is a fun story of a pod of dolphins (and their porpoise friend, Petey) that is in trouble. Their reef no longer provides the food they need to survive. The pod can’t figure out what to do until Petey suggests they hold an election to decide. We’re proud to say that the book recently won a Parent and Teacher Choice Award!
