Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6The basic tenets of American democracy are considered from both a historical and a contemporary focus. Vote reaffirms the seriousness of this privilege by discussing a significant U.S. Supreme Court case, Baker v. Carr, which determined that every voter has a voice in government. Such landmark decisions are presented in understandable terms, complemented with shorter "highlight" articles. In Worship, readers can trace the pursuit of religious freedom historically and see the contributions of William Penn, Roger Williams, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson as well as become aware of various religious movements including the Shakers and Jehovah's Witnesses. The concern over prayer in public school brings the religious freedom discussion to the present day. The series format is attractive, replete with full-color photos and black-and-white reproductions, information-packed sidebars, and highlight inserts. Students of American history will be able to relate its past and present implications to their lives. A quiet respect is fostered for those who showed the courage to fight for freedom and for those who live to maintain it.Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
