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 recent president. Topics covered within brief chapters include some of the work the president performs, how a person becomes president and a very brief history—a sentence or two each—of famous presidents. 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 book concludes, "Roosevelt helped people find jobs. He also gave the country hope. That is a sign of all great presidents." The work includes a table of contents, an index, and a list of other information sources. Otherwise 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
