I Know My Rights: A Children’s Guide to the Bill of Rights and Individual Liberty (Children’s Non-fiction, Educational, Children’s History, Middle Grade)
The rights of every person, every man, woman, and child, are inalienable; though they are written as the law of the land, our rights transcend all of humanity’s laws. They are tantamount to each individual living their most fulfilled life. The rights that we possess are not uniquely American, but rather natural rights that are possessed by all people.
What is uniquely American is the explicit nature with which these rights must be acknowledged at all levels of government. As such, it is the responsibility of all Americans to exercise their rights daily, which means that the Bill of Rights must be a recurring study and part of regular discussion.
Learning our rights at a young age is an important step in growing to be a conscious citizen; one that will not only defend their own liberties, but those of their neighbors, friends, community, and strangers around the world.
I Know My Rights: A Children’s Guide to the Bill of Rights and Individual Liberty presents the original text of the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution, coupled with an accessible and detailed explanation for each law, based in recent case law and scholarly interpretation.
The purpose of this book is to not only provide for a basic understanding of the Bill of Rights, but to also provide a foundation upon which each child can learn from and grow into active, peaceful, and prosperous individuals who seek personal fulfillment and happiness within their own lives and their communities.
