Constitution Translated for Kids by Cathy Travis
If there is ever a time that the American government and its processes our on our minds, it’s during an election year. Although this nation’s founding and its history are taught in every school and university throughout this nation, the Constitution is much discussed, but not fully understood. The Constitution Translated for Children is a wonderful resource. I can see a great deal of practical application for this book at home or in the classroom – or, more importantly, both. Within this book, Cathy Travis does a wonderful job breaking down the Constitution into understandable language and provides relevant examples. The exercises are challenging and encourage the reader to expand upon the text. After reading this book, I felt like I had a much better understanding of the document that framed my government than I ever had before – without feeling as if I was being talked down to because it is geared toward children.
