Children's Literature - Jodie Peters
This book provides a general understanding of the development of the U.S. Constitution. It begins just after the Revolutionary War; the book defines the troubles faced due to the lack of a universal national government. Readers learn that the thirteen colonies agreed to create a new nation in which all states would be governed, yet still have local power. Briefly explaining the Articles of Confederation and the birth of the three branches of government, this text explains the basic details of how our nation's founders finally created the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. This is a chronological presentation of how the Constitution was created, and general details about each step are provided along the way. The author utilizes a number of photographs and pictures to enhance the information presented. This text would benefit a younger reader or a new English second language reader during American history instruction. It is a part of the "Documenting Early America" series. Reviewer: Jodie Peters
