Are unalienable rights from outer space? How long is four score and seven years? When a flag is spangled is that good or bad? These wonderful books make important historical documents meaningful. Each book translates the work of a primary source into a language kids (and myself) can understand. Each book details what the primary source says in easier language, what it means, and the background story with lots of photo illustrations and interesting facts. The "Why Do I Care?" section condenses all the important points of the document into good reasons that we have it! Also includes a timeline, vocabulary words, a glossary, related internet sites, other children's books on the topic, and more. 32 pages, paperback. Vital information for young and old!
