Summary "What is the U.S. Constitution? And what is it saying, exactly? Without this super-important document, we wouldn't have the rights, privileges and freedoms we cherish today. But how does the Constitution affect YOU, and what exactly are YOUR rights? This book aims to answer those questions -- and many more! Follow along as we cover the basics of how the Constitution came together, how it set up the United States government, and how it has changed over time with the addition of the Bill of Rights and the amendments. After reading this book, you'll have a better understanding of your unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!"--Back cover.
