Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leslie Rounds
One of the series, "Know Your Government," this effort is geared toward very young readers/listeners. It features a paragraph of large print text on each page, and most pages also include a sharp, color photograph that generally depicts a judge at work; although, there are also photographs of the Supreme Court building and the meeting room where the Supreme Court justices decide cases, that are used to illustrate a few of the points in this brief work. Topics covered in the short chapters include an explanation of what a judge is, a description of some of the roles he/she performs in the government, a description of how people become judges, an explanation of the role the Supreme Court plays, and a four-person list, "Famous Judges," all four of whom were justices of the Supreme Court. Those listed are John Marshall, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Thurgood Marshall, and Sandra Day O'Connor. Several words in the text are highlighted in bold print and appear in the glossary. They are, also, helpfully defined with a word or two in the text itself. The work includes a table of contents, an index, and a list of other information sources. Generally attractive, the series might be useful for large collections that need information on government for early primary grade students. The large print, picture book format will not hold as much appeal for later primary grade students that are more likely to be studying the topic. Reviewer: Leslie Rounds
