New Book Teaches Kids Democratic Values

On the theory that it's never too early for kids to become good Democrats, political writer Jeremy Zilber has written a nifty picture book for younger children, "Why Mommy Is A Democrat," nicely illustrated by Yuliya Fursova. In the book, a mother squirrel explains why she is a Dem to her children in simple language. On one page she looks on from her tree house window and says "Democrats make sure we all share our toys just like Mommy does," while the little squirrels play with blocks. On another she says 'Democrats make sure we are always safe, just like Mommy does," while she shields the little ones from a big, fat elephant walking by. The book is reasonably priced at $10, with further discounts for Democratic organizations and candidates (t-shirts, handbags and teddy bears available also). If your little ones still don't get it after reading the book, just show them a picture of Ann Coulter, preferably not right before bedtime.
