Politics for Beginners
I read it to rsa aged 8
An excellent book to give a child (or even an adult) an overview of politics. It has clear and friendly approach which is suitable for primary school children. There are plenty of colourful cartoony images and chapters are broken down into clear sections. The first part of the book takes a more historical approach looking at the different kinds of governments that there have been over time. Then the book moves onto how political systems work. The last chapter is quite interesting and this was the area which my son wanted to look at in particular - Chapter 6 'Big Questions'. This chapter looks at questions from 'Who's responsible for the planet?' to 'What is terrorism?' to 'Why are some countries poor?'. I particularly liked the sections on 'How to argue' and 'Learn to debate'. Useful glossary at the back of the book. A great book which looks at politics without really judging, just posing the questions, giving the outlines and then, leaving it up to the reader to decide what they think and believe.

This must have been given to my son when he was six. At that time it was just flicked through, looking more at the photos and images than anything else. Recently he has picked it up again and started to read sections of interest to him (Dinosaurs, Killer plants and Building Toys). It is an incredibly educational book, something to dip in and out of as you please. Make great Christmas gifts.
