I posted in Parenting, because I always forget about this forum!


Does anyone know of any good books to teach kids about political views? Our kids are old enough now to follow discussions between dh and me, and I don't feel like I'm doing a good job explaining things to them. Or more accurately, I feel like I'm doing a fine job of explaining my views, but I can't explain others' views at all.


Specifically, I'm looking for books that explain the major American political views: Democrat vs. Republican, Progressive vs. Conservative, whatever you want to call it.


Someone pointed me to the thread about Unions/organizing and that's helpful, but I need more detail about political parties/ideas. For the record, my kids 6 and 9 (really, nearly 7 and 10) and read well. But, they're highly sensitive.
