From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-- A lively and informative introduction to the workings of the executive branch, enhanced by colorful illustrations. This revision of the 1978 edition is virtually identical to the original in format, tracing the history of Presidential Cabinets since Washington's administration, but it updates changes that have occurred, such as dividing HEW into two departments, Education and Health and Human Services. It describes the addition of two Cabinet posts, Veterans Affairs and Environment. Also, maps of the U. S. at various stages in its history and an index have been appended, as well as a chronological table indicating Presidential terms of office and a history of Cabinet changes during each. The final page depicts a bar graph, estimating the 1991 outlays (in millions of dollars) for each department. An accessible and readable addition to collections in which current information on the government is in demand. --Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, NY
