THE SUPREME COURT AND US!
By Christy Mihaly, illustrated by Neely Daggett
Making an important and timely topic approachable, The Supreme Court and Us provides an in-depth introduction to the United States Supreme Court. The two young protagonists take a lively tour of Washington, D.C. where they encounter many players in the nation's history. They converse with former Justices, parties in historic Supreme Court cases, and the Constitution itself, in addition to various contemporary denizens of D.C.
Neely Daggett's graphic-novel style panels and speech bubbles invite readers to tour along with their guides Ada and Bea. Back matter includes a glossary, further information, and a timeline of the case of Brown v. Board of Education. The Kirkus review says it's a great, child-friendly introduction to the Court.
