Far from comprehensive but, from “We the People” to “And women’s rights are human rights,” a serviceable highlights reel.

Synopsis

When originally published in 1999, Words That Built a Nation was hailed for bringing together the United States' most important historical essays, speeches, and documents into one accessible collection for kids. Now, this history lovers' must-have is back, and it's been revised, revamped, and expanded for the 21st century. From the Constitution and the Gettysburg Address to the 2015 Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, the updated collection preserves the documents of the first edition and introduces the landmark statements that are impacting our nation today.

With all new illustrations, a refreshed design, and complementary background information behind each of the documents, Words That Built a Nation is the ultimate tour of United States history, created to engage, inspire, and equip kids with the knowledge they need to change and shape their world.

"This book is attractive and the presentation engaging."--School Library Journal
