"In cheery infographic-style illustrations and chatty but succinct prose, Miles and Pinilla have boiled down the basics of the U.S. Constitution without shortchanging history or legal tradition . . . Both history geeks and casual students should easily ratify this one. Ages 8–12." —Publishers Weekly

Amazing interactive features like color-changing words, flaps, wheels, and a special vocabulary decoder help kids learn about types of government, checks and balances, the bill of rights, and more! There's never been a better way—or a more important time—to discover the world-changing importance of this powerful document.

They live in California.
