Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
Constitution Day is celebrated every year on September 17th. This day is set aside to learn more about the United States Constitution in schools. Children learn that the Constitution is a set of rules set by the government many years ago. People wanted to be a free country. They also wanted to be fair to others, so the Constitution was written by many different Americans. It was signed September 17, 1787. The first Constitution Day was celebrated in 2005. On Constitution Day, the children in schools learn more about our country and our freedom. They celebrate what it is to be an American. This educational book includes a timeline about the events of the Constitution. It also contains interesting facts about the Constitution. There are photographs enclosed in the book to keep the reader's attention. This simple-to-read book would be a great asset to any classroom. It is part of the "American Holidays" series. Reviewer: Cathi I. White
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—These slim introductions use simple words and sentences to explain the importance of the holidays and the ways in which they are celebrated. Constitution states that this holiday is celebrated in September. No date is mentioned in the text, but a calendar highlights the 17th. The author gives a brief history of the document and explains why it is an important part of our nation's heritage. Some of the celebrations described include learning about the constitution, enjoying our freedoms, and showing our pride as Americans. Nelson explains that June 19th marks when the last slaves were told they were free, two years after the Civil War ended. As years passed, the holiday grew beyond its Texas origins and is now celebrated across the country. Both books have numerous historical and current photos and illustrations that help reinforce the material. A spread of facts about the day is included in the end pages. The time lines are difficult to read, which can lead to confusion. Adequate for easy nonfiction shelves as general reading but not useful for research.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
