We the People: The Story of Our Constitution


It is never too early to introduce children to the cornerstone of our democracy by letting them explore The U.S. Constitution for Kids. The President of the United States swears to defend the constitution. The American judicial system serves to uphold it. The Constitution is an essential part of every American’s history and heritage - adults and children alike. There are several good websites on the Internet that explain the Constitution specifically for children of various ages. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Teaching the Constitution for kids in elementary school and middle school can be challenging. The language isn't exactly kid-friendly! But children's books can help. There's no need for you to try and painstakingly translate this complex document so that your students can understand what it means, why it was necessary, and why Americans hold it so dear.

Let the clever children's book authors and illustrators do that for you! Below are the best books about the Constitution for kids. We also have two books on the Bill of Rights below. We figured you'll be teaching these documents together, so we'd include them on the same list.

We admit, for how VERY important this document is, there doesn't seem to be very many books on our little list here. Surely we have missed some. If you know of any good books on the Constitution for kids, please let us know!
