School Library Journal - Amanda MacGregor, Parkview Elementary School, Rosemount, MN

"Using age-appropriate explanations, foundational documents of the United States are explored through events that led to their creation. . . .Colorful illustrations (mostly paintings from or of the era), reproductions of historical documents, and contemporary photographs are used effectively. . . .all volumes clearly illustrate why the documents were necessary at the time, and how their importance continues. A good choice for all elementary libraries." - School Library Journal
