Has anyone seen anything that might explain in fairly simple terms government, politics etc. I've seen the DK 'who's in charge' book, but it isn't quite what I want.
Absolutely has to include something about American government. Ds1 and I are doing a tour of Capitol Hill in a few weeks time and I'm looking for something that will help to explain what it's all about better than my hopeless efforts based on Wikipedia
I haven't, but DS was about 6 when he went round the Houses of Parliament....thoroughly enjoyed it, and is pretty politically aware for a small boy. His uncle is an MP, and he loved meeting Chukka Umana....he was very excited that his Granny emailed David Cameron about the fact that Lambeth didn't have a school place for him.....
He also loved going to vote (with me) last year. I suspect the finer points of our democracy have escaped him though.
If someone does have a book, I had better take note!
