Gr. 4-8. At the back of this book, the Declaration of Independence is printed just on four pages, but on the 134 pages that precede it, the same document appears, phrase by phrase in very large type on one page, with full-page drawings in ink and color washes facing it. The effect of the presentation is to enable children to slow down and consider each part of the document as a separate statement representing the views of the Founding Fathers as they broke ties with England. Deftly drawn and often light in tone, the illustrations are witty rather than comical, giving readers something to think about as well, though the tone of the text seems staid by comparison. Appendixes include a good, detailed chronology of events leading up to the document, a useful glossary of terms used in the text, and short lists of books and Web sites. The bibliography of books suggested for further reading includes eight titles, five of which were published by Scholastic. ((Reviewed September 15, 2002)) Copyright 2002 Booklist Reviews
