VOYAThis series covers some of the most important documents in American history, providing photos of the documents along with historical photographs and images and full text for each document. The Constitution covers what the pre-constitution government looked like, some of the events that led to the need for a constitution, the Constitutional Convention, and the ratification process along with some of the amendments. Also discussed are the parts of the Constitution and a usefully simple explanation of the often-confusing Electoral College. The text is very simple, and all the topics are touched upon quite briefly. With the integrated illustrations, easy text, and short format, these works, which also include books on the Emancipation Proclamation, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, serve best as a starting point, or a quick way to find the full text of these documents.
