Hmmm, I thought I had written a big long review for this, but I guess I didn't.

This was a solid introduction to the events leading up to the Convention as well as some of the debates that occurred. My boys were able to understand the Virginia plan and why the smaller states had issues with some things. The book briefly touched on the conflict between Northern and Southern states as well.

It'd difficult to condense everything that was said and all the personalities into one book for children. Fritz did a good job. While I think this is a good choice, I will continue to try to find one I like better. But I wouldn't hesitate to use this again.
