Gr 4-6- In the foreword, the author promises to make learning about the Constitution "Fun ." Unfortunately, these books are not fun to read. They are dense with text that reads like lawyer lite. In 32 pages, including glossary and index, readers are presented with more facts, questions, and court-case details than any student would want to know or be able to understand. Each spread has at least one photograph or drawing that usually illustrates the ideas being presented on those pages. However, the accompanying text is small, dense, and intimidating. These titles look like easy and useful choices for young students, but they fail to present the information simply and clearly.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York CityCopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
