The Constitution and it's 230-year-old language is pretty impenetrable, but how can we be expected to hold our elected leaders accountable when we’re so in the dark? Well, our guest: Ben Sheehan has an answer. WHAT DOES THE CONSTITUTION SAY? A KID’S GUIDE TO HOW OUR DEMOCRACY WORKS , an adaptation of his successful book for adults, OMG WTF Does the Constitution Actually Say. This witty and highly relevant annotation of our founding document for young readers is a go-to guide to how our government really works (or is supposed to work). Vetted for accuracy by experts in the field of constitutional law, this is an entertaining, humorous and accessible guide that explains what the Constitution actually lays out, for readers ages 8 and up. The overriding opinion being that kids and (all of us) need to understand the fundamentals to help them make sense of the chaos happening around them politically and socially—as well as to help them navigate how best they can affect change, no matter what side of the aisle they sit on.
