You want to teach your kids about the U.S. Constitution. Without the left-wing agenda. So here is a big fat list of books about the U.S. Constitution for kids.
Books About the Constitution for Kids: Ages 5 & up
Beautifully illustrated Preamble to the Constitution. With images that make the meaning clear to young readers.
Also includes the text of the Constitution. And a brief but wonderful historical introduction. As well as a map of 1787 America.
We the People: The Story of Our Constitution (Best book about the Constitution for kids by a Second Lady!)
Explains why we needed a Constitution. As well as how it came to be. Including what changes the writers made before each state agreed to it.
Will inspire questions from children. And encourage them to seek the answers.
An adorable and punny book that teaches about the roles of Congress. And constituents. As mice, of course!
Another sweet and squeaky tale about one of the three branches of the federal government. From Little Patriot Press. This one follows the mice of the Supreme Court, as children learn along the way.
Focuses on the Presidency, and so much more! From inauguration day to child-centric events like the Easter Egg Roll.
And even mom and dad will like to read the history of the White House. Such as its architecture. And the art work inside.
One of the three books in Norman Pearl’s American Symbols series. This one tells the story of the Constitution. Through the eyes of James Madison.
Simple explanations and appealing illustrations. To help young readers grasp the most important points.
What is the Bill of Rights? And how did we get it? From the point of view of James Madison.
Basic explanations, and attractive illustrations. An introduction for the youngest readers.
Books About the Constitution for Kids: Ages 7 & up
The true story of the Constitutional Convention. That will hold your child’s attention. The author writes with humor, but does not dumb anything down.
Includes the text of the Constitution. And is one of many great works by Jean Fritz.
This series puts your child in the room as the Constitution comes to life. From why the Constitution was a miracle to why the framers disagreed with each other. And even what they left out at first.
This book breaks down the facts in short sections. Which makes it great for your young child to read a little bit at a time.
Books About the Constitution for Kids: Ages 8 & up
An unabashedly originalist textbook. Sidebars and illustrations support the text. And the left-wing agenda is entirely absent.
A great intro for mom and dad too. And a more than worthwhile edition to your home library.
A hands-on way to teach kids the Constitution. With flaps, wheels and more bells and whistles.
Great for kids who are visual learners. Or tactile learners. There is even a vocab decoder for tricky words.
Books About the Constitution for Kids: Ages 10 & up
Mark Twain Media | Understanding the US Constitution Workbook (A workbook about the Constitution for kids)
The worst reviews of this book are the best reason to buy it! Panned as “dry” and “only facts”, and free from “passion”. This is a rare school book with no agenda other than to teach kids facts.
This workbook spans the start of the Constitution and each branch of government. To the articles and amendments.
