Shh! We're Writing the Constitution by Jean Fritz, Tomie dePaola

Go behind the scenes at the Constitutional Convention, thanks to award-winning author Jean Fritz's words!

Includes a copy of the Constitution and those who signed it!

"An informative, interesting, and immensely readable account of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 . . . An excellent choice for introducing young readers to the complexities of the constitution."—School Library Journal
