Constituting America's Co-Chair, Cathy Gillespie, in 2015, wrote:
  
"In the spirit of full disclosure, I am co-chair of Constituting America, where Juliette Turner serves as National Youth Director. However, my position gives me a unique vantage point to view many people's reaction to this book. Constituting America sent Juliette's book out to all the students who entered our We The People 9.17 Contest in 2012, and we have received very positive feedback from students and parents thrilled to receive it.
 
We have heard from college and law school students who have found it helpful, and adults from all walks of life have let us know that they find it indispensable as a reference tool. Constituting America Founder and Co-Chair Janine Turner and I regularly refer to it in our Constituting America work!

I have the privilege of knowing Juliette personally, and observing first hand her incredible in-depth knowledge of the U.S. Constitution! Juliette is a wonderful role model for youth of this country. She makes knowing our country's history and founding principles fun and cool!!

In 1961, President Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States when men were free."

"Our Constitution Rocks" is an excellent way for you to pass on to the children in your life a reverence and appreciation for freedom: the freedom that is a divine gift of our Creator, and protected and embodied in the structure of our government, set forth by the United States Constitution."

By Jalynn Patterson on October 30, 2014 "These aren't just a bunch of old men in suits! Many of them were ordinary people like you who overcame trials in order to become America s leader, and all of them entered the political arena with the goal of protecting the country they loved. Written for kids by a kid, Juliette s passion and excitement breathes new life into American history and the role of one of the most powerful positions in the world."  

"As a homeschool mom, it is extremely hard to find really good reference books for my children that will give them all the information they need to get their work done each day. This book is n excellent one that states all the facts about each president and then some. Juliette has done an outstanding job on the book! she takes all the boring facts or ones that children would consider boring and rounds it out with some additional fun facts about the president and his family. She begins with George Washington and ends with the current president Barack Obama. She even throws some things in a bout the first ladies as well.

For example, did you know that First Lady Michelle Obama and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt were the tallest First Ladies in U. S. history standing in at 5'11" tall. Or that during Washington's first term, he visited each state because he believed that each state should get to know who was running the government. This book was fun and informative and gives you a brief timeline on each president as well as so much more. My children had lots of fun reading and looking through it to learn more about our government."

Item Special Note

"I purchased this awesome book as a gift for a teacher friend, and I'm glad I made the right decision. 'Our Constitution Rocks' is the first easy-to-read, interesting, and enjoyable book that I've seen for ages 8 and up. Through the last 20 years and even before that, I remember searching-and-searching for a book about the Constitution that would pique the interest of my daughters and grab their attention, and it wasn't an easy task back then.
I wish this was published when they were in elementary school, but it's a great advantage for today's children. Youth Advocate, Juliette Turner delivers an easy-to-read presentation on information about the Constitution, how it changed history, facts about our Founding Fathers, and much more.
In addition, the author creates a unique portrait of our great nation, making history interesting for a new generation, and reminds us about freedom of speech as she portrays the importance of Freedom. Enjoyable with illustrations, clear, and simple. This gem belongs on the shelves of school libraries and in the classroom!"
