In her fourth installment of the Questioneers chapter books, author Andrea Beaty aims to educate and entertain, and does both spectacularly well. Sofia Valdez and the Vanishing Vote combines a fun, relatable story and tons of practical information about the election process and history in the United States. Sofia's abuelo listens to her troubles and offers a lovely sounding board, helping her see how her grappling with what "fair" means fits in the context of history, and the precious right and responsibility of voting.

Among the many practical tips for navigating an election is the kids' discussion about how to know what information is factual and true vs. biased propaganda, and why voting matters, which is an important concept for future voters to grasp.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
