Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-10-Turner's peppy writing style will keep teens hooked long enough to understand-and possibly even enjoy learning about-the U.S. Constitution. Each article is broken down into sections, then translated into lay terms and given historical context and significance. All of them are accompanied by primary-source quotes (and Turner's interpretation of their meanings), fun facts, comparisons with the Articles of Confederation and British laws, and, most importantly, reasons that teens should care about and become engaged in the Constitutional process. Unfortunately, gross inaccuracies are evident on numerous occasions. Most striking is the insistence that the Constitution-and the entire system of government-was founded on Christian principles. Mentions of Christianity are also incongruously located in the section about weights and measures, the Emoluments Clause, and the establishment of the Treasury. There is also a distinct negativity to mentions of President Obama's track record, including his time living overseas, the 2011 NATO airstrike on Libya, and his refusal to back the Defense of Marriage Act (although his social-media presence does get a positive nod). While Turner is entitled to her political opinion, modern partisanship in either direction does not belong in a children's book about the foundation of the country.-Rebecca Dash Donsky, New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this awesome book as a gift for a teacher friend, and I'm glad I made the right decision. 'Our Constitution Rocks' is the first easy-to-read, interesting, and enjoyable book that I've seen for ages 8 and up. Through the last 20 years and even before that, I remember searching-and-searching for a book about the Constitution that would pique the interest of my daughters and grab their attention, and it wasn't an easy task back then. I wish this was published when they were in elementary school, but it's a Great advantage for today's children. Youth Advocate, Juliette Turner delivers an easy-to-read presentation on information about the Constitution, how it changed history, facts about our Founding Fathers, and much more. In addition, the author creates a unique portrait of our Great nation, making history interesting for a new generation, and reminds us about freedom of speech as she portrays the importance of Freedom. Enjoyable with illustrations, clear, and simple. This gem belongs on the shelves of school libraries and in the classroom!

I am so impressed with this book, and the author! I had a chance to meet her and hear her story of writing this book. I was so impressed that I immediately ordered it. I have really wanted to better understand the constitution, and this will be a great book to help me do that. It is written for a teen audience, but my younger kids also are learning from it. I am a homeschool mom and I am so happy to have found this wonderful resource. I recommend this to anyone who wants to understand more about our country, the constitution, and the founding fathers. She did and incredible job putting this together in a format that is fun and easy to read!

This is a fairly comprehensive children's book about the why and what's of the United States Constitution. Although it is a childrens' book, it contains information appropriate for adults, too.

This year instead of toys we got our niece and nephews educational books. I was a little nervous, but thrilled when it turned out they loved the books. Apparently they were learning about this anyways :)

In the spirit of full disclosure, I co-chair Constituting America [...]where Juliette Turner serves as National Youth Director. However, my position gives me a unique vantage point to view many people's reaction to this book. Constituting America sent Juliette's book out to all the students who entered our We The People 9.17 Contest in 2012, and we have received very positive feedback from students and parents thrilled to receive it. We have heard from college and law school students who have found it helpful, and adults from all walks of life have let us know that they find it indispensable as a reference tool. Constituting America Founder and Co-Chair Janine Turner and I regularly refer to it in our Constituting America work!

I have the privilege of knowing Juliette personally, and observing first hand her incredible in-depth knowledge of the U.S. Constitution! Juliette is a wonderful role model for youth of this country. She makes knowing our country's history and founding principles fun and cool!!

In 1961, President Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States when men were free."

Our Constitution Rocks is an excellent way for you to pass on to the children in your life a reverence and appreciation for freedom: the freedom that is a divine gift of our Creator, and protected and embodied in the structure of our government, set forth by the United States Constitution.
