School Library Journalea. vol: rev. ed. illus. by Leonard Everett Fisher. index. (American History Topics Bks.). CIP. Lerner. Aug. 1985. PLB $8.95. Gr 4-6 Token revisions of Morris' The First Book of the Revolution (1956; o.p.) and The First Book of the Constitution (1958; o.p., both Watts). The years since original publication have seen the addition of two more states and two additional amendments, but these are mentioned only in passing. Comparisons of the old edition with the new in each case reveals that the revisions are so slight that word for word comparisons are necessary to identify those changes. Even the illustrations are nearly identical to the originals. Only for collections that do not have the original titles. Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, Kans.
