Jude Donovan, 5, casts his vote for his favorite book recently at the Bill & Julia May Children’s Center at Brazosport College. The lesson was aimed to teach children about democracy and how to vote.   
Kids at the Bill & Julia May Children’s Center at Brazosport College recently had a hands-on lesson in democracy.
 
The entire preschool, which consists of around 90 children ranging from six months to 5 years old, nominated and then voted for their favorite book.
 
The kids made the nominations, with “Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat,” “Clifford the Big Red Dog” and “Llama Llama” receiving the most selections. The children then cast their vote for the favorite of the three books, with “Clifford the Big Red Dog” earning the highest vote total.
 
“This is a fantastic learning opportunity for the children,” said Julie Littlefield, Director of the Bill & Julia May Children’s Center. “Our staff at the Children’s Center is incorporating real-world events in the curriculum so that children can learn more about the world around them. We hope to do this and many more events for years to come.”
