We, The People
Oversized, vibrant book perfect for gifting to kids 6-14.
With the 2020 Presidential election around the corner, there has never been a better time to take a closer look at the Constitution, the bedrock of U.S. politics. Inquisitive minds will have their questions vividly answered – and new ones raised – by a mix of striking illustrations and clear, engaging text, including passages from the Constitution given in plain English.
As well as a detailed history covering the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all Amendments, discover how this milestone in American democracy shapes and is shaped by the world at large. We The People shows that, far from a fusty old piece of paper, the U.S. Constitution is a living, evolving rulebook that is as relevant today as it has ever been.
We The People takes the Constitution out of its display case, blows off the dust and re-imagines this piece of history for the next generation.
An enlightening addition to upper elementary and middle school collections for its in-depth look at the Constitution and the U.S. government” – School Library Journal
