Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 May #1
    These books in the series Our Bill of Rights (7 titles) take an in-depth look at one or two amendments in the Bill of Rights. The books strike a balance between the historical context and general meaning of each amendment. A Jury of Your Peers deals with trials involving both crimes (the Sixth Amendment) and property (the Seventh Amendment). The importance of the subjects is highlighted by the way the books are almost literally wrapped in the flag, with an American flag backdrop for each page of text. Each spread features its own title and an adequate stock photo or historical image. Many spreads also include either a "Know Your Rights!" or more general sidebar with additional facts or background information. These books are unlikely to spark deep interest in constitutional law, but they are useful resources for social-studies research. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
