Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-National Government shows how our federal government works and stresses the need for cooperation and compromise under our system of divided government. Words defined in the extensive glossary are printed in bold type. Crisp full-color photos feature a diverse array of citizens and officials. Although many examples shown in text and photos occurred during the Bush administration, which is already ancient history to most elementary-grade students, the material is presented in such a way that the book will not become dated immediately. In the second book, Feinberg explains what state officials such as governors, legislators, and judges do, how the actions of government agencies affect our lives, how their powers and responsibilities differ from state to state, and the division of power between the federal and state governments. These well-written choices for students studying American government are good accompaniments to the ``Good Citizenship'' series (Steck-Vaughn).-Eunice Weech, M.L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
