About this title


Presented in easy-to-read language, We The People makes the Constitution fun and approachable for children. Spier gives the historical facts behind the writing of the document, while his colorful and realistic illustrations depict scenes of past and present American life. "...A joyful celebration of the people whose leaders created the Constitution..."--Booklist, starred review. Full-color throughout.

From Publishers Weekly:

With his characteristic attention to detail, Spier celebrates the Constitution by including the Declaration of Independence, the body of the document, amendments, a 1787 map of the U.S. and a photograph of each of the signers. He briefly outlines the history of the document and the events of its creation. The book covers similar ground as others published this anniversary year. Then, in 25-30 frames each spread, the artist tries to show what the words inspire. He depicts scenes of America in 1787 and 1987: one woman hangs clothes on a line in colonial days, a modern woman pulls clothes from her dryer; a prisoner sits in a stockade back then, another is seen inside today's prison cell. There are scenes of the U.S.'s roads and monuments, of national historic sites, of ordinary moments and day-to-day individual freedoms. Spier has created a tribute that can be appreciated in more than one sittingthe images are varied and exhaustive. All ages.

Store Description

Bkslinen operates out of my home and I have over 10,000 out of print children's books. I am now retired and working very diligently to get them listed and sold. I love children's books and it is a joy to find a book for someone who remembers the book from their childhood. My granddaughter, Tiffany Power, is now helping me with my books.
