By Ani DiFranco

Illustrated by Rachelle Baker

Ani Di Franco has penned a lyrical narrative for her youngest audience: a picture book about the eye-opening act of voting. A young girl accompanies her mother to their local polling station and pays witness to the commonality of this experience. Her mother gently reinforces the great responsibility and importance of this act, while the girl moves through feelings of excitement, nervousness, and ultimately, invigoration. Rachelle Baker adds an authentic neighborhood feel in a range of bright, bold colors and familiar faces, establishing a realistic and relatable setting. An age-appropriate call-to-action for all young citizens.

"My mom didn’t just bring me to vote with her, she brought me when she went and volunteered time to campaigns. I stamped envelopes with her. I canvased door to door. Being engaged as a citizen, understanding your role as a citizen, even really knowing there is such a thing, is not automatic. Like many things in this complex world, it must be taught, and it must be modeled. I am very grateful to my parents for giving me that gift" - Ani D

Rachelle Baker is a multi-disciplinary artist from Detroit, MI with a background in
Relief Printing, Illustration, Comic Art, and Music. Her work centers cultural infusions
of women. She is inspired by Shoujo manga, anime and comics bad girls, stoic
women dancing in the backgrounds of late 90's/early 2000's R&B videos, and the
sound cats make when they're yawning. She has been voting since 1998, when she
ran for 2nd grade student council secretary, and believes that it is important that people have both a voice and a choice.
