Checks and Balances: A Look at the Powers of Government
Kowalski, K. M. (2012). Checks and balances: A look at the powers of government. Minneapolis, MN: Lerner.
Checks and Balances: A Look at the Powers of Government is an excellent addition to any elementary school library. Checks and Balances explains clearly the balance of powers between the three branches of the United States Government. Teachers could use the book in classes to clarify those powers in early civics lessons. The pictures are current and clear including the current Supreme Court and president. This is an excellent choice to update a library, and is written for third through fifth grade.
