Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Using short, clear sentences, this slim book explains how mayors work with city councils, managers, and citizens to improve city services. Readers learn how mayors are elected, their responsibilities, and how a city council passes new laws. School children learning about local government will find this informative, and one is left with the impression that City Hall is eager to hear from all citizens. Instructions on how to write to a city's mayor could make a good class project—it explains how to find the mayor's address, how to address the letter, and where the stamp goes on the envelope. The many color photographs show a wide range of people working: the city manager is black, some of the voters are young people, and the city council is remarkably diverse. Included are a short index, a glossary (words in it are in bold in the text), a web address for finding related sites (one of the three links was dead at the time this review was written), and suggestions for further reading. This is part of the "First Facts/Our Government" series. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
