Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
This book provides an interactive look at government. This activity book shows how government works, how children can get involved in politics (how to write to the President and government officials), and how they can activate their own political power (how to run for a school office--and win!). Learning is made fun with sidebars that inform and question, trivia, crossword puzzles and word searches.
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-A breezy introduction to American government. Weizmann has an obvious bias: democracy is cool and kids should know about it and take part in it at whatever level they can. Covered briefly are world and federal governments in general and the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the U.S. in particular. Worked in are fun facts about 42 presidents, how a bill becomes a law, famous Supreme Court cases, and a bit about party politics. The second half of the book focuses on getting involved through grassroots activities, letter writing, or volunteering, with an emphasis on environmental and human-care issues. The final section deals with holding a mock election and running a campaign as a candidate for student government. A list of related agencies is included. There's lots of humor in the text and the black-and-white cartoon style drawings lighten the serious content. Both Frances Shuker-Haines's Rights and Responsibilities (Raintree Steck-Vaughn, 1992) and Richard Steins's Our Elections (Millbrook, 1994) are more studious in their approach. Whether interested in government because of a cause, election season, running for office, or an assignment, students will like Weizmann's approach to "everthing you ever wanted to know" about government.-Peg Glisson, Dewitt Road School, Webster, NY
