Constitution Day Pocket Constitution Books

A Little Giant

"This pocket-sized pocket constitution book is a perfect jewel for all citizens from grade school on up. I stumbled across it after I lost the first pocket-sized U.S. Constitution I was given in high school. Although less than 100 pages from cover to cover, this book contains so much valuable information on the founding of the country, including facts on many of those who guided the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. The book also contains the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and key dates and Supreme Court cases that have shaped this country and the Constitution's interpretation.

Brian M. Ayres (Valrico, FL USA)

All Americans should read this.

"Given the confusion brought about by polarized opinions in Congress and the misinformation and bias of media reports, it behooves all Americans to once again read the Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence if you haven't done this for some time. The author's interesting information of the Founding Fathers is a nice bonus."

R.C. Cunningham (Cody, WY. USA)


"WOW! That's the only word that can possibly come out of one's mouth when you get a load of this book. This book is something that should be used as a reference in every home! There is a copy of the entire Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, heck, what more could you ask for? Facts? You ask for facts? Hey, there are awesome facts, good to know facts, and just for the fun of it facts, too! Like, in 1878, an amendment stating that an executive council of three should replace the president tried to get passed! For only a few bucks, I'm very glad I purchased this pocket constitution book because I love it and use it all the time."

J. Markowitz

A concise review of the worlds most powerful document

"I was first introduced to this book while attending law school. During my Constitutional law classes a professor recommended this little U.S. pocket constitution book that reviewed and outlined the constitution. I was amazed then and continue to be delighted with the historical developments that are shared in this "quick read". For under three dollars I actually learned more on the U.S. constitution than I did with texts that cost several hundreds of dollars each. Five Stars, this is a real keeper."

Dr. Jonathan Rose (Miami, FL. USA)

A Must for Every American

"This booklet is small enough to fit in a pocket, purse or backpack. I carry a copy in my attache case at all times. I have used and read through this so many times that I needed to buy another copy. Plus it is only $3! Eventually I would like to give a copy of this booklet to all Seniors taking American Government in High School. Personally, I think it is important for Americans to know about their Constitution and Supreme Court Information to see how their government works."

Kevin Welker (Carey, OH. USA)
