"The current political season has exposed children to television and radio political advertisements, campaigns debates and rallies, and dominated local, state, and national news broadcasts. A consistently outstanding publisher of ‘books-in-series’ titles for young readers, Capstone Press has released their six volume ‘Cartoon Nation’ series of colorful and fact-filled, 32-page picturebooks. Written and designed to specifically appeal to children ages 9 to 12, they include “Democracy” (9781429617819, $7.95); “Political Parties” (9781429617826, $7.95); “Political Elections” (9781429617802, $7.95); “Citizenship” (9781429617796, $5.95); “The U.S. Congress” (9781429617833, $7.95); and “The American Presidency” (978-1429617789, $5.95). Blending humorous illustrations with a thoroughly ‘kid friendly’ text, each of these thoroughly ‘kid friendly’ books are as entertaining as they are informative. The entire ‘Cartoon Nation’ series is enthusiastically recommended for family, school, and community library collections." - The Midwest Book Review, Children’s Bookwatch

"Proving civic engagement really is for everyone, Capstone introduced a new series of graphic novels in 2008 that focus on key social studies concepts for younger students including political history, democracy, civil rights, and governance. The combination of engaging full-color illustrations, humor, and clear and concise text make each book in this series accessible. The sheer amount of factual information in each title makes this series a perfect fit for any school library or classroom. I highly recommend all of the books in this ongoing series for older elementary students and middle school students, but if I could only purchase a few titles my money would be on th eones tha taddress the branches of government, the political process, and democracy because they breathe life into subject areas that have traditionally been pretty boring for younger students. Elementary/Middle School." - Library Media Connection
