Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Bright and appealing layouts will draw readers to these overviews of American constitutional history and government. Each book describes the historical background of its subject and traces its evolution as the country and government grew and changed. The authors don't attempt to cover all aspects of the Constitution and government. Rather, they use interesting and often timely examples about historical and current issues to show readers how the federal government operates, examining the interactions between the branches of government and those of the federal government and the states. Large, colorful reproductions and photos depicting leaders and relevant topics will draw students.
