I am a firm believer in knowing one’s rights in order to claim them and protect them, but sometimes, the convoluted language gets in the way. “Constitution for Kids” by Cathy Travis is a book that helps not only kids understand the Constitution, but also helps adults to understand just what is written.

This book reminds me that when we take the time to read our laws we realize they are decipherable. Just as we are our own best experts concerning the education of our families, we become our own best experts in maintaining our rights and remaining an educated citizen by taking the time to learn the laws of our country, our state and our towns.
