Children's LiteratureThis book, part of the "American Moments" series, tells about the influential documents and people that lead to the creation of the Bill of Rights. The text is relatively easy to understand, and includes sidebars with text from many "bill of rights," such as the English Bill of Rights, the Virginia Declaration of Rights, and the U. S. Bill of Rights. The book contains many pictures that complement the text. There is also a timeline, fast facts, a glossary, an index, and the publisher's website that says it has updated links to the Bill of Rights as well as other "American Moments" books. At this time, the website did not have any information on this particular series; however, the other websites chosen to accompany different series did look promising. This is a nice read for school reports on the history of the Bill of Rights, or others who are wondering about this important document. 2004, ABDO Publishing Company, Ages 8 to 12.
