Thirteen separate states strove "to form a more perfect union," and succeed in doing so by drafting a document that some have argued is the crowning achievement of our country. Young readers learn about the important representatives involved in the drafting of the Constitution and about the ten amendments that became the Bill of Rights. The Constitution established the law of the land in 1789. A response to the inadequacies of the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution provided the framework for our government and judicial system. Readers will explore the framers' goals and intentions in the drafting of the document and learn how and why our nation still lives by its principles. The easy-to-follow text is supported by primary source documents and full color images.
