To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this to read to my kindergarten class in preparation for our work around voting. The message of the book is a good one - take action. We want our students to be change makers, for sure. The introduction of the bear as a citizen left us shaking our heads and the children confused. It was a weird make-believe addition that ruined the book. I should have read the reviews before buying, and I would have passed on it. The illustrations are lovely, though, and the page quality is nice and thick...if only there wasn't that bear.
