Review from Booklist for the “My Guide to the Constitution” Series, Gr. 3-6, June 1, 2012.
The “My Guide to the Constitution” series offers a solid look at some of the most important events surrounding the country’s beginnings. . . .The Bill of Rights explains how the rights in the Constitution evolved and what they mean. Also addressed is the global impact of the Bill of Rights; a copy of the document is appended. . . .The artwork, historical paintings, and photographs are for the most part well chosen. Overall, this is a good, ground-level place to get kids talking about government and what it means to their lives –Ilene Cooper
