Did you know that the official ruler of Canada is Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain? Were you aware that in Canada’s Senate each of the senators is selected by the Prime Minister rather than being elected by the people? Did you realize that some Canadian Lieutenant Governors administer provinces larger than many countries around the globe? These and many other interesting questions about Canadian governance are addressed and answered in this title from the illustrated “Your Guide to Government” series. As is the case with other books in this government studies series, Rodger presents her subject with an eye toward explanation without narrative frills. Rodger offers concise introductions to a wide range of subjects concerning Canadian governance that provide her readers with a good start toward understanding how this bicameral government works. Rodger also compares the functioning of various elements of the Canadian government to its neighboring United States as well as other democracies. Readers will come away from this slim volume with a good start toward grasping the roles and functions that exist within the Canadian government. As such, this book may well serve as a valuable augmentation to a course in government studies. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 9 to 13.
