The Story of Your State Government

Book Description

The Connecticut League of Women Voters put together this book to teach Connecticut children about the government at a local, state, and federal level. From the general structure of government to budgets to elections, Virginia Adams lays out the basics and brings home the details of how at every step everyone is affected and can get involved. As Mary Erlanger wrote in the Introduction, The Story of Your State Government is meant “to help young people understand the functioning of democratic society—and the responsibilities of citizenship.”
