Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Perhaps no portion of the pantheon of governmental documents in existence in the United States has greater significance than the first ten amendments to the federal Constitution. Known as the Bill of Rights, these adjustments were originally designed to protect the innate liberties of citizens in a new land founded upon a belief in democracy. Embodied within those ten amendments were protections for various items, such as personal expression, religion, fair trial procedures, and the press. Here, in Judith Lloyd Yero's illustrated work, readers can encounter those impressive protections and their history. The Bill of Rights is designed to offer youngsters an introduction to the history and practicality of this vital part of the Constitution. Written with a deft hand, this is a highly readable look into a subject that could easily descend into the tedium of arid prose. Nevertheless, Yero does an excellent job of chronicling the development and evolution of the Bill of Rights while also offering insights into modern applications. As such, this book serves the dual purpose of offering readers a firm-footed introduction to this important document while simultaneously tickling the reflectivity of its readers. This is a solid work and one that should find a useful place in the libraries of young scholars interested in political science. Part of the "American Documents" series. 2006, National Geographic, and Ages 10 to 14.
