I LOVED this book! I had it suggested to me from my mother and sister (both teachers at the same school) and they said that all of their students loved it!

I simply cannot say enough good things about this book. As editor, I can say firsthand that Juliette takes her passion--she's the National Youth Director for Constituting Amercica--and she writes about history in an engaging, fun, and unique way. This book will appeal to kids, even though they're learning! Same with her first book, Our Constitution Rocks! Oh, and did I mention, Juliette is 14?

I personally guarantee that adults and kids of all ages will discover something really cool that they ne
