Audible Editor Reviews

As the oldest founding charter still used by any independent country, the United States' Constitution has influenced governments around the world. Here, actress Leah Vandenberg provides young listeners an inviting and educational introduction to this important document. The sprightly Aussie explores the Constitution's history, including the roles played by America's Founding Fathers. Elsewhere Vandenberg provides a clear description of the three branches of government laid out in the Constitution, and explains the difference between the House of Representatives and the Senate. The proceedings conclude with an informative look at the process of amending the Constitution, and the importance of the Bill of Rights in protecting American's freedoms. Animated and amicable throughout, Vandenberg creates a learning environment marked by clarity and enthusiasm.

Publisher's Summary

Learn about the history of the US Constitution with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds.

The United States Constitution is the highest law in the United States of America. All other laws made in the country come from the Constitution. The Constitution outlines and shows how the government of the United States should work. It is the oldest and yet shortest Constitution still in use in any major independent country. The United States Constitution is over 200 years old.

In 1787, there were only thirteen states in America. It was in the middle of May 1787 when delegates from twelve of these states met in Philadelphia to begin drafting the document that would soon become the United States Constitution. The only state not to attend was Rhode Island, as they believed the talks would encourage them to forfeit the rights of their state.

    "not what I expected"

    I expected to hear it read and explained in light of recent rulings. Disappointed.

    "Perfect for Teens"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was the perfect length and clarity for my teenage kids to gain a better understanding of the U.S. Constitution. I am now looking for similar books about the Declaration of Independence and other historical documents.

    "U.S. Constitution: General Knowledge"

    This book provided me with what I needed, a summary of what is contained in our Constitution. If I need more detailed information I know where to go but for my purpose right now it was just enough - Great Summary.
