This beautifully illustrated hardback book is subtitled "A Second
Amendment Lesson." The publisher states that this is the inaugural
book in a new series. I am hopeful that other Constitutional rights
will be discussed in upcoming books. This one deals with the right
to bear arms; it covers gun safety and the reason our forefathers
wrote this right into the Constitution. The book is for young children
and very clearly states the information in a way that is interesting
and informative to children. Amazon says the book is for ages 9-12,
although I thought it might be for a slightly younger audience.
This book contains 46 glossy pages. In the back of the book there
is information for parents to help teach about our Constitution
and about gun safety. Links are also provided to information on
these subjects by Gun Owners of America, The National Rifle Association,
and the Boy Scouts of America.
I loved this book and hope there are more in the offing. I believe
it is important to teach our young children about our freedoms,
our great country, and our Constitution. I highly recommend this
book as a resource for any homeschool social studies program.
