This Is Our Constitution: Discover America with a Gold Star Father

This Is Our Constitution examines the nation's founding documents at a level middle-grade readers will easily grasp yet not find condescending. Gold Star father Khizr Khan's awe and appreciation of the content is contagious, and his candid asides--featured in speech bubbles throughout the book--create a personal connection with the reader: "My wife and I were amazed when we discovered that this amendment wasn't passed until 1920. Imagine, for nearly 150 years the women in this great democracy did not have the right to vote!" This Is Our Constitution injects enthusiasm and energy into learning about the government. And for adults who choose to share in the experience with their young readers, the refresher is motivational. A beautifully meaningful look at the U.S. Constitution. --Jen Forbus, freelancer
