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.

An English accent ?

Nothing against the the narrator but I would have picked a person with a American sounding accent, no offense.
For this 5 min. reading it's not worth buying.

This is not the US Constitution, my money back

This is the pretty basic explanation of the US Constitution, not in fact the constitution

Simple, short

Very simple and basic knowledge of the constitution. It’s good for those that are not familiar with us history or want a clarification of our laws

Just a back story, a reminder of what
we know the document to be

A pleasant enough explanation

This was a better explanation than I understood in Grammer school. Then again, my first experience with this material was not presented by a lady with a charming Australian accent.

not what I expected

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