Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
The qualifications and duties of Representatives are presented in simple sentences (two to four per page) for beginning readers. They are accompanied by full-color mostly uncaptioned photographs that show current members at work in Washington, D.C. and with their constituents. Teachers can use the photographs to elaborate on the text and elicit discussion in the classroom. This is a serviceable introduction to how a bill becomes a law. A small quibble: for clarity, the three branches of government should have been introduced prior to delving into the work of The House. As part of "The U.S. Government" series, this title includes a Glossary, three books in the Read More section, Internet sites that can be found on Facthound and an index. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
