How the U.S. Government Works: ...and How It All Comes Together to Make a Nation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fine classroom supplement and a solid information source for kids writing social studies reports, this book explains the federal system as it works today, more than two hundred years after the framers of the Constitution brought it into existence. Covered here are the Legislative body, composed of Senate and House Representatives, the Executive branch, headed by the President and consisting of Cabinet members and their agencies, and the Judicial branch, headed by the U.S. Supreme Court, and extending to federal courts throughout the nation. Young readers learn how officials are elected or appointed and how government agencies work for the people's benefit. A complex process is explained in interesting terms that young readers can comprehend.

Synopsis:

Sobel explains the three branches of the federal government--legislative, executive, and judicial--and how they work.
