    " Post Revolution, of course, but we were on a Fritz kick and we couldn't stop! Such interesting trivia sprinkled through this book - it makes the story really memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skye | 12/29/2013

    " Lots of info about the constitution (and the actual constitution in the back). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 12/23/2013

    " Decent writ but I felt that many important details were left out so that some more humorous spots could be added. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 12/10/2013

    " Any book by Jean Fritz get my 5 star rating! I have my students at the University read this book as an introduction to the time period. So historically accurate, so delightfully detailed, so short, so funny, so readable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 O2snowwhite | 12/4/2013

    " I LOVE this book! As with any of Fritz's books, you can tell that history is her passion. It's a little long for younger kids, but packed full of awesome information, some of which is more trivial and less-known, but helps bring the "characters" to life. "

    " interesting details!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ethan | 9/3/2013

    " I didn't really like this book because it was boring and I already knew most of the stuff they talked about. I did learn a little, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caren | 7/19/2013

    " A perfect little book that explains the process to write up the Constition. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joenna | 5/10/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs.Garcia | 12/3/2012

    " Great information. Easy read, but I'll probably read portions to my class. Might be tough for my fourth graders to get through. I loved it, but it is not exactly high interest for them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Etta Mcquade | 11/22/2012

    " Jean Fritz, in her usual sense of humor, reveals the personalities of the various constitutional delegates, yet at the same time is able to show the great task that they had undertaken. Excellent for grade school children. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anibas | 7/1/2012

    " I have to read this book while I am on vacation this week. So far it is boring so my mom is going to read it with me. "
