    1. I am an educator by profession, and social studies/history is probably what I am most passionate about. I have taught long enough to realize that the generation coming up does not know U.S. history. All too often, when it is taught, the students hate it because it is taught in such a boring manner. I have been absolutely appalled at the misinformation and lack of knowledge out there about our country's origin. It is said that the majority of Americans would not even be able to pass the test for [...]


    2. Imagine seeing the modern day US government through the eyes of the founding father's. In this book David Bowman imagines what George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and James Madison would think about our current situation.The book does a brilliant job of discussing the role that Government "should" be taking in the life of the American citizen. He illustrates how the Government was organized and how it works best. He then shows how far off track we have gotten as a nation and how inefficient th [...]


    3. What Would The Founding Fathers Think?By David BowmanIn a fun twist of history, technology and graphics David Bowman looks at the founding of America and wonders what our Founding Fathers would think of today’s America.When our Founding Fathers signed the Constitution they began a new form of government, one based on giving freedom and power to the people. America was to be a rising sun in a dark world. But would the founding fathers be pleased with the direction that America has gone? Have we [...]


    4. Travel with George Washington, James Madison & Benjamin Franklin as they hop into one of Ben's inventions - Franklin's Fantastic Future Forecaster. The expression on their faces as they look into our time is illustrated on the cover of the book. Then Benjamin shows them a contraption in his time machine - They will be able to Share Knowledge w/Young People Everywhere - Benjamin says he calls that (SKYPE) for short. As the young people have questions, they Can Have A Turn and their words will [...]


    5. What a fun book to read. The author uses wit and humor to tackle todays monumental problems. America is a crumbling nation. Do we sit by and hand it to are children or do we try to fix it? What would the founders of this nation think? Would they be proud of what we have become or would they cry because they worked so hard and we've destroyed all they accomplished? This book features marvelous illustrations. It is a very quick read and should be given to every young child. After all, they are our [...]


    6. This book was very interesting because in the beginning all of the founding father got into a time machine and traveled to the 21st century. They described what our founding father wanted for our country and what we have made of that. They said what we can improve in the United States and things that are very well and don't need to be changed. The author was very creative when writing this book and he also probably felt very strongly about how our country has developed.


    7. When I was younger this sort of thing was boring and over my head, but this made it very fun and easy to understand. It's approached conservatively, mostly reminding us to be moral people and not try to take over everything, because a lot of problems stem from overstepping our bounds.


    8. This was a distinctly unique but old school values book that my children not only understood but needed to hear and really enjoyed.


    9. My children and I just finished studying about Ancient Rome last month, so I thought it was quite a coincidence that I received a message from David Bowman asking if I'd like to review his book since it was on my tbr list. What does Ancient Rome have to do with this? Well, if you don't know or remember anything about Ancient Rome (it had been a long time for me and I didn't remember much before we studied it again) it influenced our country's formation quite a bit. You see, those in Ancient Rome [...]


    10. My Review: What would the founding fathers think? This is just the right question anyone would ask due to the country’s current crisis. According to history, the founding fathers signed the constitution forming a nation unlike anything the world had ever known. The founding fathers Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and James Madison inspired by God, created the United States of America and the signed constitution it to protect certain God given rights and offer freedom.The author listed thr [...]


    11. The book starts out by giving three facts every young American needs to realize:1) The United States of America was and is the greatest nation on Earth2) Today, the United States of America is in serious trouble3) You will inherit the USA- and it’s problems- in just a few short yearsThis start may seem scary to some of you, but I think it’s very straight forward and will gear the children up for what they are about to read. Hopefully, that leads them to absorbing the words they read! I know [...]


    12. I am not a fan of politics in children's books. Children are very impressionable and believe everything they see, hear, and read. They don't have the power to know both sides and choose what they believe the best argument to be. It doesn't matter which side of the aisle you are on, politics do not belong in children's books. History, on the other hand, is another story. I think it's very important that children learn our history and know what has happened in the past to bring us to where we are [...]


    13. This book was a fun and well presented look at American values and politics intended for younger readers. It was very conservative leaning, but overall tried very hard to remain based in facts and balanced information. What that means is that the book is biased toward a Christian value viewpoint but makes efforts to avoid pushing it down your throat. By understanding this from the beginning, I can see this as a great teaching tool for Christian families to introduce politics to their children.I [...]


    14. David Bowman is AMAZING!He writes ideas in such a fun way that you ENJOY learning! And his pictures are so ENTERTAINING!This book is REALLY REALLY GOOD!While this book has been written specifically for the youthI believe EVERY person living in the United States should read it.This book teaches why we need to:1. Grow closer to God instead of taking him out of our home, money and schools.2. Have values like being responsible, instead of having attitudes like "do whatever you want".3. Learn how to [...]


    15. David Bowman makes history and government fun for young readers. His illustrations capture their attention while the format he has chosen for delivering the information is easy-to-follow and fun. By using time travel a computer chat room he is providing important concepts in a way that is pertinent and relevant for kids of today. Adults also will benefit from reading this slim volume. I know I learned a lot about the foundation our country's government is built upon. I hope that Bowman gives his [...]


    16. I read this book a while ago. It was written with teenagers in mind, but I feel that it is a book everyone should read.It is written in a simple, yet entertaining way. That's what engaged me. And the best part is that it made sense. Everything he wrote was clear and I felt the same way about our country that he does.Overall, I feel like this is a great way to review some history, learn about our responsibilities as citizens of this wonderful nation, and learn how we can be better in those respon [...]


    17. What would the Founding Fathers Think is an okay book about how to fix our country but the author is a little too consevatist for me. Although there are some true facs so many things are altered by personal opinions that it's hard to know what's true. The biggest thing in there that was wrong was the "Lack of god an religion leads to lack of virtues and values." I'm guessing the author has never met anyone who isn't a super christian because I have friends who are not religious and they are very [...]


    18. Fun book to help youth (and adults) understand principles that our country was founded upon. I gave a copy to each student in my Key of Liberty class as an end of year gift and reminder of the most important principles that we had studied together over the year.


    19. A great read that explains what the founding fathers had in mind when they put together this great nation. "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other" - John Adams


    20. We borrowed this book from a neighbor. I enjoyed it more than the kids. It does a great job of explaining in very simple language some of the systemic problems our country faces. Granted it's very simplified, but for a kids book is surprisingly insightful. Worth a read, even for adults.


    21. Besides it's conservative under tones this book was very engaging and informative. The use of time traveling founding fathers was a excellent way of bringing the true believes of our government back into perspective.



    22. An easy-to-understand, brief overview of the way the US government was set up and functions best to protect freedom. A great intro to a study of the constitution!
