School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-This series explores the Constitution in terms of how it was created: how it applies to history and current society and how it shapes policy, law, civil rights, and the way we live today. The series highlights seven different subjects that are affected by the way the Constitution is interpreted, with background information and modern-day applications provided. Students will come away with a broad picture of how important the Constitution was and remains. The authors collectively strive to maintain an objective voice, even when dealing with heavily debated topics such as abortion and gun control. Though the books are text heavy in parts, the language is concise and straightforward. Chapters are broken down with clear subject headings and text boxes containing additional information. Overall, a solid series. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
