Overview

All elementary school students learn about the history of the U.S. Constitution when they first begin social studies. This book is different. It tells boys and girls about the great American document itself—explaining exactly what the Constitution does, as well as how it affects and protects people today. Kids discover how the Constitution provides for the federal government's three branches—legislative, executive, and judicial. Then they see how it gives all citizens many rights, including the right to vote, to enjoy freedom of speech and the press, to worship—or not worship—according to one's religious beliefs, to disagree openly with government policy, and to defend oneself in courts of law when accused of crimes or civil wrongs. Kids also see how, according to the Constitution, many rights are kept beyond control of the federal government, and are reserved for the separate states, communities, and individuals. This book's language is clear and simple. It cites many examples that relate directly to each student's own experiences. (For grades 3-5)

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A straightforward overview of what the Constitution is and what it does. Short chapters on the various components and aspects of the document are direct and easy to understand as branches, checks and balances, and rights are defined and explored. Pen-and-ink sketches and informational sidebars emphasize points made throughout the book. While Betsy C. Maestro's A More Perfect Union: The Story of Our Constitution (Lothrop, 1987) focuses on the design and development of this document in a narrative style, Sobel's book focuses on its essential elements. It's a useful addition to the study of U.S. history and government.-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—The first book describes the makeup and functions of the three branches of government and includes updates on how a bill becomes a law and on the many departments and agencies of the Executive branch. Elections delves into campaigns, the electoral college, presidential succession, and other related topics; it includes the 2008 presidential race and new electoral vote totals from the 2010 Census. Constitution explains many aspects of our governing document, including how it was written, how it can be changed, and some of its key provisions. It has been updated to include topics for classroom discussion throughout. The author presents the information in a manner that will be understandable to children. Unfortunately, the books' format will not hold their interest. The illustrations consist of sketches done in black, white, and shades of blue. Everything is drawn, even the maps and an illustration showing part of the preamble to the Constitution. No photographs or facsimile documents are incorporated. Lists of related books and websites are not included in Government. Many libraries will already own books about these topics, and these sources do not offer anything unique or new. For basic information presented in a more appealing format, consider William David Thomas's "My American Government" series (Gareth Stevens) or Ernestine Giesecke's "Kids' Guide to Government" series (Heinemann).—Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA

    My Gone Explanation

    Hi. If I've told you I'm gonna be gone June 8th through the end of July, here is why. If not, well, I am. Of course, I WILL be able to come on at times. Ok so, let me explain myself. <p>

    My parents are divorced. I live with my Dad and visit my Mom on certain holiday breaks. The summer is one of those that I visit my Mom. Well, with my Dad, I'm always allowed on the WiFi. At my Mom's, I'm only allowed sometimes (About 2-3 times a week. And only for maybe an hour.). <p>

    That's why I decided to just make my characters gone (with the exclusion of Moosetail, who is a part in a prophecy.) <p>

    I plan on visiting the nearby library a lot, and if they have public WiFi, I'll get on. But other than that, I can't get on. <p>

    There, actually, is a couple of times I will be with my Dad. I will be here Father's Day weekend and also July 14 - 19. <p>

    If you want to tell me something, please leave a place we can meet. I also have a Nook HD, which means my results are different, so titles also would be appreciated. <p>

    Thank you guys for reading and understanding!
