Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Explaining how our federal government works to a primary school student can be a formidable task. Making it simple enough to be understandable yet also relevant to a child's life is challenging. The U.S. Supreme Court, one of four books in the "First Facts-Our Government" series, succeeds in meeting this challenge. Laid out like a mini-textbook, the book includes a table of contents, a hands-on exercise, glossary, bibliography, and index. Each two-page "chapter" is headed by a simple title and an easy-to-read explanation of five to six sentences accompanied by a full-page photo. The book opens by describing how police officers, when they read someone their rights during an arrest, are following rules set by the U.S. Supreme Court. A brief description of the Constitution, who can become Supreme Court Justices and their jobs follows. A typical court day, where cases originate and how the justices make their ruling are also covered. Interesting "fun facts" are scattered throughout. The book also features the FactHound, an Internet site with a direct link for this book. When FactHound, "the fact-finding hound dog" fetches related web information, it links the student to several kid-friendly web sites offering additional information on the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Government. Easy to read, colorful, interesting and informative, this is a government "textbook" that primary school students will enjoy using. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 9.
