More Perfect Union
This book shares the story of our Constitution, from the convention beginning in May of 1781 to the ratification of the original thirteen states and the amendments which followed. The text is written in a story-like manner, with colorful pictures illustrating throughout. Included in the back are a few pages providing other important notes and dates.
With a breadth and detail of information that is unusual in children’s books, you get a glimpse at cultural aspects and daily life, education and religion, as well as military and political happenings. In the back of each book is a brief description of key events along with biographical information on important people. Perfect for family read-aloud time (children 5-10) or independent readers (3rd-5th), the well-written text by Betsy Maestro and the lovely illustrations by her husband, Guilio, will become a family favorite.
