Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
The qualifications and duties of U.S. Senators are presented in simple sentences (two to four per page) for beginning readers. They are accompanied by full-color uncaptioned photographs that show current members at work in Congress 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. A small quibble: for clarity, the three branches of government should have been introduced prior to delving into the work of Senators. 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
