My kids wanted to read this, because they watch O'reilly at night with me (yes, I am passing on my love of politics to them), so I thought maybe I should read it first. I really liked it. I love the way he writes, and this book was very easy for children to understand. He basically explains government and how all the offices work together to make up the laws of the land, and people's rights and how shady of an area that can be at times. I have approved them to read it.

This book all depends of course, if you like Bill O'Reilly or not. It is a good informational book about the bill of rights, supreme court stuff, and your rights as a kid dealing with parents and schools.

This book was meant for teens and therefore is a short, easy read. It skims the surface of issues relating to teens, introduces the bill of rights and explains briefly how America's government works. I enjoyed the book and think it is a good introduction for teens into some complex social questions.

Usually I like to hear what he says, not always agree, but hear him out. I thought this book was a bit simplistic and maybe I needed more meat with this but it kind focused more on him than the actual rights of children and teens in America.

I originally thought this book was for parents, so I was slightly surprised when I started reading this book and realized it was addressing teenagers. Nonetheless, it was very enjoyable.
Although the cover might dissuade some from even touching the book, O'Reilly presents information about legal rights in an engaging format that I think can get almost any teenager hooked.
The best part about the book was, without a doubt, the court cases and incidents that he uses as examples to explain the consti

A well-written book for children that I also shared with mine while driving as I also own the CD version. My daughters, teens at the time, recognized themselves in the advice and did not necessarily agree or like what they heard. It was especially poignant in the chapter that dealt with death as two of their friends' fathers passed away.

Bill O'Reilly is most passionate when it comes to children and he champions them on every issue he can. This endeavor is to reach as many children as he can so

I leared how my rights, as a child of the United States of America, how my rights were started, how they worked and how they today are beign argued and fought about. As I learned from real stories around the country, I know that some rights are confusign in different ways. I also learned how the judicual branch of the Checks & Balences of the U.S., how and when the community gets involved, then city, state, then the country. How issuses rise from city courts, to state courts, and into when t ...more

This isn't one that I would normally pick up. I was experimenting with getting ebooks from the library and this was one of the first I saw that didn't have a wait list. It was good for what it was. Basically it is making the attempt to teach teenagers what their rights as Americans are. I think he did a good job at making, what may seem, a boring topic relatively entertaining for the target audience.

An easy-to-read book about kids' Constitutional rights. I think this is a must-read for every young adult. It's also a good primer for adults that don't know a lot about the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. The language in the book is age-appropriate, interesting, sometimes funny, and current. The book will teach kids that their rights aren't so "cut and dry", but rather depend on the state and community in which they live.
Konstanty Pawlowski
This book was a very fSt read because it's less than 150 pages. I didn't enjoy it as much because it was very cheesy and that made the book very annoying. The book was informative and sometimes it was contrary to what I thought, so I learned a lot of information. It was well written and I enjoyed the concept but not the actual book itself. It got boring and monotonous. I still recommend it because it gives you a lot of necessary information.
I remember reading this in Middle School.

If you are a Republican parent who wants Republican kids, if you have a kid that reads go ahead and give them this.

It got me to go around spurting out phrases that Bill O'Reilly had said but I did not fully understand all through high school.

I remember liking it at the time, as a 12 year old. I am sure I would hate it now.

This book is a fundamental guide for kids and most adults who are unaware of their rights in America. I could even see it being used in some American Government classes, as long as it had another test book presenting other points of view and more about the rights discussed with it.
It's a simple book, Good reading not so much for teenagers, or at most 13-15, but I would say a youth as young as 8 would understand this. So, I am not sure of the audience he is aiming for, it's seem over simplified, but a good introduction for kids that have no idea.

Recommends it for: Teens
It was short, but very informative. Very easy for teens to relate to, as it talked about some issues that one might face in school or at home.

Bill presents interesting cases that are mini-civics lessons that are pertinent to issues facing high school age kids.
This book is easy to read and very logical.

This is a great way for kids to begin learning about their rights in our country & it encourages them to read the Constitution of the USA.

great book for your middle-schooler to read. You should read it too if you need a brush-up on defining your American rights...

This book moves really fast, I read it in about an hour. It had lots of information on the Bill of Rights in a way kids can relate to. It would be good for middle school kids.

I learned that schools are really bossy about all the stuff that they make you do. I disagree with the school's opinion on lots of things.

Shrill O'Reilly has the intellectual chops of a toaster pastry. Yet another bunch of crap from this self-obsessed mental lackwit.

This was a pretty good book. Easy read. I wonder how teens actually like it because I know a lot of adults are reading it even though it's written for kids.
