Book Overview

Whether Congress is in session or not, here is an enthralling overview about the branch of our government closest to average Americans.

Best-selling adult author and the first woman to become executive editor of The New York Times, Jill Abramson is a self-confessed political junkie. Now she has written the book she wishes she'd had as a young reader. Explaining clearly and concisely what exactly Congress does, this book is peppered with fascinating stories, including the bloody beating in the Senate of a lawmaker in pre-Civil War days, the Watergate hearings, and Senator Joe McCarthy's shameful witch hunt of Communists. Kids may start considering a career in Congress themselves when they learn fun facts, such as the special candy desk in the Senate, and the fact that all lawmakers can bring their dogs to work

With 80 fun black-and-white illustrations and an engaging 16-page photo insert, readers will be excited to read this latest additon to Who HQ
