Constitution Day

Aloian, Molly. Constitution Day. Crabtree Publishing: 2009. ISBN: 9780778742869.

“Each year on September 17, every school and college that receives federal money, or money from the government, must teach students about the Constitution” (p. 18).
Imagine my excitement, as a Title I reading teacher, to discover Constitution Day just waiting to be shared with my primary students next September 17th. This book follows the patriotic red, white, and blue theme throughout and has bright, vibrant stock photos. This informational text is complete with a table of contents, glossary, and index. Each double-paged spread of this thirty-two page book tells some fact about the Constitution or Constitution Day. It also includes a “Did You Know?” insert with a quick fact that could easily be incorporated into a Constitution themed display for a classroom. This very informational book will be enjoyed by both teachers and students and is definitely a book I would add to my classroom library.
