Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheri Stowers
Learning about the Constitution is a big concept for young minds, but this beautiful picture book presents the basics in a child-friendly, appealing manner. Colorful full-page photos and paintings take the reader back to the 1700s, where it all began. Included in the art/photo pages is a painting of the Revolutionary War, a painting of the thirty-nine leaders who signed the Constitution, a photo of the Supreme Court building, and much more. The artwork complements the simple, child-friendly text. The book includes many useful features such as subject-specific vocabulary words, which are defined in a glossary, a table of contents, an index, a list of Internet sites related to the book, and a list of supplemental books. This works well as a read aloud, and is an excellent resource for a social studies class. Parents and teachers may want to employ other tools such as stories, dramatization, field trips, etc to help make this concept relevant to young learners.
