My son is 13 and has been very interested in politics lately. I thought he would love this book and I was right! He read the whole thing in one night! Here is what he had to say…
“What Would the Founding Fathers Think?” was a very entertaining and thoughtful book. I have always loved learning what’s going on in politics, and this helped me understand it much better. For example, this book went into how we, as individuals, are affected by the government. This part I liked about the book because it made me become more aware of government issues. I also enjoyed the creative examples of some ideals, like freedom with a kite. It also showed how we, as individuals, are influencing society. This book inspired me to be a better citizen now and in the future, because when we inherit the US, like it said in the book, we will also inherit all of the US’s problems. Another cool thing about this book is that it brings up many conversations with family, with friends, and at school! I hope that all of the kids in America will read this wonderful book!
