Things We Like: Voting for a Porpoise

Get your kids excited about the voting process this Election Day with Voting with a Porpoise by Rock the Vote board member Russell Glass and children’s author Sean Callahan. The new book follows Petey the porpoise and his pod on an aquatic adventure. Celebrate democracy and the power of voting and community with your child as you get ready to rock the vote Tuesday, November 6! Are you ready?

This book is meant to educate children about voting and why it is so important. Understanding the importance in voting is essential at a young age – especially since so many Americans who are eligible to vote, don’t. In fact, in 2016, 76.2 billion Americans were eligible but did not register. In this book, Finn and Petey’s goal is to change that for 2018.

Grab your copy at or any participating book store, and let your kids go on a journey with ocean friends and learn about how only one vote can change everything! Adults love it, too!
