School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5-The first book details the activities of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and describes how a piece of legislation becomes law. The second book begins with the Preamble and then gives an overview of the writing of the Constitution, the three branches of the U.S. government, the Bill of Rights, and the way amendments are made. The format of both titles, text on one side and an accompanying illustration on the other, makes these subjects accessible to students just beginning to study government. While David Heath's The Congress of the United States (Capstone, 1999) and Linda Carlson Johnson's Our Constitution (Millbrook, 1992) cover much of the same ground, the full-color photographs of current members of Congress and their activities make these titles up-to-date additions. Both complement Jean Fritz's Shh! We're Writing the Constitution (Putnam, 1987).-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
