George Washington comes alive in this fascinating activity book that introduces the leader to whom citizens turned again and again--to lead them through eight long years of war, to guide them as they wrote a new Constitution, and to act as the new nation's first executive leader. Children will learn how, shortly after his death in 1799, people began transforming George Washington from a man into a myth. But Washington was a complex individual who, like everyone, had hopes and fears, successes and failures. In his early 20s, for instance, Washington's actions helped plunge Great Britain and France into war. He later fought for liberty and independence, yet owned slaves himself (eventually freeing them in his will). This book weaves a rich tapestry of Washington's life, allowing kids to connect with his story in 21 hands-on projects based on his experiences and the times in which he lived. Children will learn how to tie a cravat, write with a quill pen, follow animal tracks, sew a lady's cap, plant a garden, roll a beeswax candle, play a game of Quoits, and make a replica of Washington's commander-in-chief flag.The text includes a time line, glossary, websites, travel resources, and a reading list for further study

With a focus on dramatic stories, personalities, and turning points, The US Congress for Kids examines the major milestones in congressional history, from the abolition of slavery, extending the vote to African Americans and to women, and investigating misconduct in both government and private institutions. Young history buffs will love the drama, controversy, and colorful characters that have always been part of Congress's history while teachers and parents will appreciate the thorough coverage and clear discussions of Congressional purpose, structure, history, and ongoing issues. Helping kids understand why government matters, the book looks beyond the Washington "beltway" to how members of Congress interact with constituents, those citizens that put them in office. Educational, hands-on activities that illuminate the workings of the US Congress include making a House ceremonial mace, creating your own congressional money, making a capitol dome, and designing a Congressional Medal of Honor. Ronald A. Reis is the author of numerous nonfiction books for kids and young adults, including Christopher Columbus and the Age of Exploration for Kids, selected for the National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People list. He lives in Calabasas, California. Henry A. Waxman, a Democrat, is the US representative for California's 33rd congressional district. Kristi Noem, a Republican, is the US representative for South Dakota's at-large congressional district.
