Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-These books offer good information for students beginning to explore and understand the purposes and functions of different governmental systems. In World, two-page chapters explore democracies, communist and socialist states, monarchies, and other systems with attention to international organizations such as the United Nations and NATO. The functions of city, county, and school districts are explained in Local. The three branches of government in the U.S. and the process of a bill becoming a law are briefly outlined in National while State covers capitals, taxes, leaders, and legislature. Appealing layouts feature many full-color photographs, diagrams, and color-coded maps. These simply written titles provide a bridge between the "New True Books" (Children's) and the "I Know America" series (Millbrook).-Gayle Modrall, Presbyterian School, Houston, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
