The book is well-written, and keeps my child's interest. It gives a history of the Constitution, and the reasons the Founders had for adding the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. It also touches on the controversy between Federalists and Anti-Federalists, and explains why some of the Founders were against adding a Bill of Rights to the Constitution.
The book then gives a short synopsis of each of the first Ten Amendments, along with the historical background that led to the need for each amendment.
This book is devoid of political opinion and simply states the facts.
