The stories behind the Constitution are as powerful as the nation it created. ?We the People of the United States, in Order to for...m a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.? After the American Revolution, the thirteen united states were joined, barely, by an almost powerless government. The federal army was too weak to defend the nation; there was no national currency; and there was no authority to collect taxes for debts. Soon states? militias were needed to quiet rebellions. As Washington wrote, if a change wasn?t made soon, the new nation ?rais[ed] at the expense of so much blood and treasure, must fall.? Delegates from twelve of the thirteen states met in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to create the United States Constitution. But it was no easy task? four months of bitter debate ensued, in which arguments became so heated that delegates nearly abandoned the convention many times. Thirty-nine men ultimately signed this important, influential framework that saved our country and gave us our amazingly strong and balanced federal government.

?Are trees alive? How do they breathe? They dont have noses.? And so begins a conversation between the author and her daughter tha...t leads to a remarkable discovery: Trees are like children in so many ways! They may look very different from people, but trees have roots that hold them to the ground like feet and leaves that blow in the wind like hair. Their bark even comes in different colors, just like our skin. From this poetic comparison of plants and humans, readers will learn how trees live and grow, and how they get their food. They will learn about the baobab trees of Africa, the banyan trees of India, and the bristlecone pines of California. They will see, through Stacey Schuetts exquisite art, that trees come in all shapes and sizes?just like people?and provide a home to many different animals. But most of all, they will look at trees with greater respect and a bit of awe, after realizing that trees are alive too.
