Looking to explain the workings of our government to kids, or yourself? This site is for kids, but we are bound by the librarian code of secrecy– we won’t tell anyone what you’re reading (and we aren’t tracking it either). With sections for ages 4-8, 9-13, and 14+, you can find easy to understand concepts and definitions for a variety of age groups and ability levels.
Ben’s Guide to US Government for Kids, a service of the Government Publishing Office (GPO), is designed to inform students, parents, and educators about the Federal Government, which issues the publications and information products disseminated by the GPO’s Federal Depository Library Program. It is our hope that Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government fulfills that role.
