Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that each state has the privilege of creating its own laws that govern the lives of the citizens of that state? For that reason, many states' school calendars are different from one another. This is also why the speed limit on highways varies from state to state. This nonfiction book highlights the differences between state and federal rights and responsibilities. In some instances however, state and federal government cooperate on a particular project by working together. A section on state constitutions describes the foundation of state government and the three branches of state government are explained. This book would be useful for fourth or fifth grade social studies units on government. The glossary, index and table of contents are helpful text features. Also useful is the bibliography of other child friendly books and of web sites on this topic. 2004, Kaleidoscope/Benchmark Books, Ages 8 to 11.
— Nancy T. Braverman
