On December 8, 2004 President Bush officially signed Constitution Day into law. The law mandates that each year, on September 17th, schools and colleges that receive federal money are required to teach the Constitution. The new law was championed in Congress by Sen. Robert Byrd who famously carries around a copy of the document in his pocket. Sen. Byrd became increasingly alarmed at the lack of civics education-specifically relating to the Constitution-in our public schools and he wanted to take action.

The remarks following each article and amendment are very helpful. They explain and give context. The cover looks like it's for kids, but I am an adult and this book is just what I needed. I also like that it's small and fits nicely in my bag.
