Hello all,


Does anyone have experience with the "How Government Works" series of
books.  It includes titles such as:


A Balancing Act: A Look at Checks and Balances

Declaring Freedom: A Look at the Declaration of Independence, Bill of
Rights, and the Constitution

Friendly Foes: A Look at Political Parties etc...


I am wondering what your opinions are on these books.  I have a 5th
grade teacher suggesting them, but I am not sure if they are a good
choice.  If not, does anyone have suggestions for the government
processes to use at the elementary level?


Thanks in advance.
