As a homeschooling mother, I am very concerned about bias in the curriculum I choose, particularly when it comes to history and government. Ideally, I should not be able to ascertain the author's political ideology from the published work, and that is definitely the case with this book. I have no idea if Syl Sobel is liberal or conservative.

The book is well-written, and keeps my child's interest. It gives a history of the Constitution, and the reasons the Founders had for adding the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. It also touches on the controversy between Federalists and Anti-Federalists, and explains why some of the Founders were against adding a Bill of Rights to the Constitution.

The book then gives a short synopsis of each of the first Ten Amendments, along with the historical background that led to the need for each amendment.

This book is devoid of political opinion and simply states the facts.

These were PERFECT for my 8 and 11 year old to help explain the elections that are going on right now that our family is following oh so closely. It's been kinda cool after the kids reading these that they have a better understanding and we can now talk politics as a family ;-)
  • Dugor
Great book for parents trying to give their kids history and not someone else's agenda. No agenda here. The author tells it like it is point of fact and keeps the politics out as much as possible. The book has the Bill of rights written out as they are written. They are not paraphrased.

could be better

Accessible and thorough, this book did the trick for our curious 7 year old. It's a fun way to learn about the rules that govern our country and offers some interesting food for thought as to how a country is created and how, over time, additions and clarifications to those rules are an essential part of the process.
  • Kizshura
I really like the way this book is laid out. Will be looking at his other books for our homeschool curriculum.
  • Goktilar
Well written and easy to understand. Can be used for young students as well as older students with learning disabilities. Teachers, this is also a great way for you to brush-up on your American History in a fun and enjoyable way! Worth reading.
I grew up with the Author of these books and bought them for my Grandson to read.
