Description


"For a simple, straightforward explanation of the election process, this book is hard to beat."--The Boston Herald

This updated, easy-to-read book explains the federal system as it works in the United States today. It also discusses some ways in which the government has changed since the framers of the Constitution brought it into existence in the 18th century. Described are the Legislative body, composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives; the Executive branch, headed by the President with the Cabinet members; and the Judicial branch, headed by the Supreme Court of the United States, and extending to federal courts throughout the nation. New in this edition are facts about how a bill becomes a law, the various departments in the Executive branch, and more. Young readers will learn how officials are elected or appointed and how government agencies are supposed to work for the people's benefit. A complex process is explained in interesting terms that young readers can comprehend.
