We want to teach elementary level kids about voting by inspiring tens of 1000s+ of "Caramel Apple Elections" across the USA this Fall.
#Who We Are
Vanessa A. Purdom lives in rural Indiana. She is happily married and mother of two, Anna and Savanna, and it was while volunteering at their school that she came up with this sweet idea - fun and educational - to teach young elementary age kids all about voting! Vanessa is also an attorney.
Janet Verdeguer, Granny Apple Publishing, LLC. She is a happily married micro-publisher who lives on the West Coast of Florida. After a career in marketing, she moved to Sarasota to care for her 95-year-old Mom over the last three years. During this time she learned about Print on Demand publishing and has published seven books, including "The Caramel Apple Election" under the Granny Apple Publishing imprint.
# Join In
We need your help to spread the word about The Caramel Apple Election in time for these sweet events to happen across the country this Fall. Time is of the essence. We have the book, but not the means to promote it and gain the national attention it deserves. Do you believe in America? Do you believe in our kids? Help us teach them all about voting! No Politics! No Agenda! Just some good, sweet, educational fun!
We truly appreciate any donation in any amount to help us turn this dream into reality. Thank you!
Kids will discuss whether they prefer the red or green apple, instead of bringing negative comments about actual candidates, from what they have heard at home or in the media.
There are many materials and resources for middle and high school students, but there is a lack of fun, colorful, interactive stories that teach younger kids about voting. This book definitely fills a void.
Hands-on experience, actually tasting the different apples, helping count the votes or taking any part in The Caramel Apple Election will help kids remember what they learned. This will translate into a larger population of voters when these children reach the age of majority.
