With that same passion, Ben is educating children and teaching lessons surrounding the election process while also sharing the story of school-age bullying.“In the fall of 2018, Michigan was in the midst of electing a new governor. My son, then age 11, asked me questions about elections, government, and politics. We had incredible conversations about those important issues. Keaton and I had just finished reading a middle-grade book together, so I looked for a relatable book about politics and elections for him. I assumed that there must be a fun, entertaining, and educational book that could help him understand these topics while also teaching him the values we want to raise him with. After much research I realized there were no books Ben's that available,” explained Ben.Take a moment and tune in to the Leadership Lowdown!
