Gr 6–8—This series not only provides insight into U.S. political processes, but also acts as a guide to getting involved in government. The history behind U.S. legal rights and the documents ensuring their endurance are explored, as are the branches of government and how they coexist. The voting and election processes, civil rights violations, and organizations that work to protect citizens' rights are also highlighted. The differences between civic duty and civic responsibility are thoroughly explored with concrete examples. Finally, each volume stresses the importance of youth involvement and provides ideas for readers looking to make a difference.
VERDICT For the civic-minded, this is a useful tool for promoting thoughtful citizenship among youth.
