Civics and Our Government

Civics teaches kids about the rights each of us has as a citizen, as well as our responsibilities, such as voting or serving on a jury — and getting involved in our communities to make them better for all. Do you know any kids who are eager to volunteer in their communities? Or kids who are curious about the history of voting rights in the U.S., how a bill becomes a law, how we elect our President, and stories about life (and pets!) in the White House? We’ve gathered up a great collection of books for school and home. Find more books, plus activities, apps, and kid-friendly websites at Start with a Book: Civics and Our Government.
