Booklist Review of Filibuster

This brief book packs in a tremendous amount of straightforward, accessible information about filibusters. Two lines of informational text flow throughout the pages.

One offers four or five enlarged-font sentences that explain definitions and basic applications, with vocabulary words highlighted in blue. A second, more sophisticated line consists of word boxes in standard fontthat appear below the enlarged sentences, offering additional insights. Most pages with text include some kind of graphic and usually face full-page, full-color illustrations that apply directly to the content (photos feature senators currently in office). Back matter includes quotes, checks for understanding and study tips, a glossary, index, and sources for further reading and research.

Part of Bearport’s In the News: Need to Know series (6 titles), this helpful guide will be welcomed by students, parents, and teachers.
