Reviews

Library Media Connection

“This new government series is a real winner. It is easy enough for a second grader to understand the concepts, but complete enough for a fourth grader to learn a lot from the text.” —Library Media Connection

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“With as much pep as a Sousa march, these titles delineate the hows and whys of U.S. government…. While each book stands by itself, as a whole, they emphasize the relationships between the government’s many parts.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
