When originally published in 1999, Words That Built a Nation was hailed for bringing together the United States' most important historical essays, speeches, and documents into one accessible collection for kids. Now, this history lovers' must-have is back, and it's been revised, revamped, and expanded for the 21st century. From the Constitution and the Gettysburg Address to the 2015 Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, the updated collection preserves the documents of the first edition and introduces the landmark statements that are impacting our nation today. With all new illustrations, a refreshed design, and complementary background information behind each of the documents, Words That Built a Nation is the ultimate tour of United States history, created to engage, inspire, and equip kids with the knowledge they need to change and shape their world.
