The U. S. Constitution and Bill of Rights

The U. S. Constitution and Bill of Rights
By Maegan Schmidt
Minneapolis:  Core Library, 2013, Ages 8-11

This is a non-fiction book discussing the US Constitution and Bill of Rights and the road to their place in our nation.

The author has illustrations and pictures which complement the text. The writing is informative and summarizes a lot of information in a clear manner.

The illustrations vary from diagrams to paintings to digital pictures. All work to set the scene.

This book is lengthy making it appropriate for children in grades 3-6.  It comes from the Core Library so it contains information that supports the common core state standards. I recommend this for use in the classroom. It also provides several lesson plan ideas and additional online resources.
