Know Your Rights!

A Modern Kid's Guide to the American Constitution

by Laura Barcella
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union . . . establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
A simple, unintimidating introduction to the US Constitution and the rights it grants every American citizen.
The American Constitution is one of the nation’s most important documents—but what is it saying, exactly? This book helps children understand the answer to that question. In simple, accessible language, it describes how the Constitution was drafted and who the Founding Fathers were; provides a summary of all the articles, amendments, and the Bill of Rights; and explains why the document remains so relevant today.
“. . . a straightforward and valuable resource for fostering civic engagement.” —Publishers Weekly
