The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution, originally comprising seven articles, delineates the national frame of government.

The Constitution also provides that the Senate advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments . All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives

The Constitution also provides that the Senate advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments and on the approval for ratification of treaties. For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers successfully separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the federal and state governments. All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Simply a beautiful volume that makes reading a serious, not-so-short yet critical (and not so long either) document a pleasure. It occurred to me during this election cycle that we should really all own copies of the Constitution. Just as a Christian might own a Bible, and a Muslim a Quar'an, how can we as Americans not own the document that makes us who we are? An edition by Sam Fink is the one you want to get. Mine, which I bought used, turned out to be an oversize hardcover, which I was not expecting but which I can accommodate. You may choose a different size, but choose Sam Fink.

I was looking forward to getting this thinking it would be easy to read as the Constitution is hard to go thru. I also liked what I saw online as far as the illistrations. When I recieved it the writing was anything but easy to look at and read. The illustrations are great though. I would still recommend this book to someone who knows and collects books on the Constitution.

Engaging, but the unusual font and layout make it difficult for an otherwise advanced young reader.

The first time since high school that I had read the Constitution and Amendments. It was educational and entertaining. Everyone should re-read them and this is a first class way to do it.

I purchased 3 of Sam Fink's "The Constitution of the United States of America". One for each of my grandsons, ages from 8 to 11. I felt the artwork and antidotal information would help them have a better understanding of the very underpinning of our democracy. Hopefully, as they each reach this chapter of American history in class, they can share it with others.
