A positive review of this book was posted previously (http://inquisitive-kids.blogspot.ca/2013/03/making-government-non-boring.html). An updated version is now available which takes into account the Idle No More movement, the Fair Elections Act, and the shooting on Parliament Hill in 2014.
Canada Close Up: Canadian Government
by Elizabeth MacLeod
This is a good introductory book that'll give kids basic information about how government works. The large font and short length (57 pages) makes it a quick, educational read. Good for primary grades.
