Book Club for Kids

Dec 29, 2021

Something a little different this week and next. As we approach  January 6th, parents and teachers may be looking for a way to discuss the attack on the U.S. Capitol with children. Our other podcast THE FINA MENDOZA MYSTERIES created this special 2-part episode to help open a discussion about the events, without scaring kids. 

In this episode, 10-year-old detective Fina Mendoza, the daughter of a congressman, has a new mystery to solve: who stole the 5th grade's pizza? Her class discusses the attack with their teacher, putting it in a larger context about winning and losing. The episode includes a discussion about the electoral college, Washington's decision to not run for a third term, and how democracy is like baseball.
