    2. Peter Spier's book presents the United States Constitution in a format that is particularly attractive to young people. Following a historical introduction to the document's inception and historical importance (supplemented with an 1787 map of the US), the book presents an illustrated version of the Preamble to the Constitution. In Spier's lavishly detailed style, he presents many scenes from Colonial America, juxtaposed against comparable scenes of America in 1987. Through these images the audi [...]

    3. This is not an easy book for elementary school readers. However, it provides a dense, informative overview of the making of the American Constitution. Words that could use extra explanation during a class or one-on-one read aloud include by are not limited to justice, tranquility, defence, welfare, liberty, and prosperity. In order for this book to make sense to a young reader, a strong background of the history of the constitution that goes beyond the overview presented in this book is necessar [...]

    4. Contains the preamble to the U.S. Constitution, with a number of small illustrations giving context to each phrase, followed by pictures of each of the signers with his name, date of birth, and position. Also contains a history of the Constitution, as well as the document text, amendments, and footnotes.This book, or something like it, would be very useful for classes studying the Constitution, and especially for those students who are writing reports or doing other research projects on American [...]

    5. We the People is not a book that I would want to pick up and read often. There are a lot of small pictures on every page. Every picture has a square around it so you can tell the difference between all the pictures on the page. I do like how the pictures are so small and they have a lot of illustration done to them. It is cool how small the box is and they can fit everything in it and it is still very detailed. There was not one picture that did not have any color to them. They all had vibrant c [...]

    6. This would a great book to read-aloud to a group a school-aged kids. The pictures go along with the preamble to the Constitution. The rest of the Constitution, as well as the history behind the Constitution and information about the signers of the Constitution, are towards the end of the book. Depending on the size of the group and the age of the school-agers, you can go as in-depth as you'd like into the topic.

    7. Awards:NoneReading Level: 3rd gradeInterest Level:3rd-4th gradeClassroom Connection: This book is geared more for students that are older because it gives so much information. This book breaks down the Constitution and gives the student background information on how the Constitution came to be. The pictures in this book do a great job of showing students how things were done back in the time period in which the Constitution was written and how we do things today.

    8. The Constitution is quite difficult for younger students to understand. This story puts it into less intimidating language while still keeping all of the important facts from the Constitution. Used at the beginning of a US Government lesson, this will help the students stay focused and have something to lean back on in times of confusion.

    9. If this were an original text this would be a 5 star all the way .e pictures are 5 stars. There are so many and so well done and so meaningful you have to study them!!! This is book to study and look over and look over again,.I also like in the end there is a copy of the Constitution, and pictures of the founders!

    10. This book begins with a decent summary of the who, what, when, why, and how of the Constitution, then moves on to the preamble with accompanying illustrations by Peter Spier, which are, as always, incredible. I am forever a fan of any books that captivate minds and increase our appreciation of our American forefathers.

    11. Like The Star-Spangled Banner, this re-issue is chock-full of great illustrations and information including the complete Constitution, its history, and a roster of its signers. Great to have in any library.

    12. This is big good window for world to see/Know how the American ppl started from Europe, Africa and Aisa into the virgin land. where all Races, color, Religious live together peacefully. Also how America become the dream of the teenagers, talented, farmers, technicians in the world etc.
