Children's LiteratureDid you know that the state legislature, general assembly, and general court all reflect the state's legislature or law making body? These legislative bodies are found in each state and responsible in considering which bills will become laws. The process that a bill goes through before becoming a law is presented step by step. This is demonstrated in a very child-friendly way by describing the steps Minnesota school children took in getting a law passed which made the blueberry muffin their official state muffin. The governor's role in producing a law is also presented in the book. Students may feel empowered after reading how a citizen has the authority to present a bill to the legislature for vote or put it to election on the state ballot. Text features such as a table of contents, index, and glossary are included, as are web links to visit for additional information on the topic. 2004, Kaleidoscope/Benchmark Books, Ages 8 to 11.
