    This is a charming book about Congress. Congress has a lot of history and it is difficult to cover everything in a small children's book. But this little book did a good job. However I would have liked if it explained how the election process took place, how members are elected to the Congress, and about the electoral college. A basic difference between Democrats and Republicans should have been give to young children. The illustrations are catchy and different. With just a few pencil strokes th This is a charming book about Congress. Congress has a lot of history and it is difficult to cover everything in a small children's book.

    Now obviously I am not the targeted audience of these books as they are geared towards Children. However I thought this served as a great introduction into how congress works. The last few pages leave a little bit to be desired as it mentioned the storming of the capital on January 6th which shows the liberal tinge of the series. However, Most rational people will agree that January 6th was a blight on American History and will go down in infamy.
