In May 1787, men from all over the United States arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on serious business. Just eleven years earlier, colonial leaders had met in Philadelphia to declare their independence from Great Britain. But now the young country was in trouble. The U.S. government was weak, and its guiding document--the Articles of Confederation--was failing. Throughout the summer of 1787, state representatives and leaders argued, shouted, and wrote and rewrote articles. By September, they had produced a new document, the U.S. Constitution. The Convention became a turning point in American history. But what were the new country's problems? Who came up with the solutions? How did the states work out disagreements to create a new system of government? Discover the facts about the 1787 Convention and the writing of the Constitution.

Review:

"The titular six questions in each book are clearly stated and are the guiding questions for its chapters. Authors include sufficient background and enough detail to answer the queries; and sidebars, quotes, primary-source excerpts, and period art and contemporary photos augment the texts. Although these topics have received wide coverage in extant titles, and the books offer little new information, the question-and-answer format will help readers identify and understand each topic's most salient aspects and will sharpen their nonfiction reading skills, making the books attractive options." --School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
