Book Review: What Would the Founding Fathers Think?
What Would the Founding Fathers Think? A Young American’s Guide to Understanding What Makes Our Nation Great and How We’ve Strayed by David Bowman
ABOUT THE BOOK: With wit, humor, and the occasional serious note, David Bowman brings the founding fathers back to life, showing how they might react to America’s current political pickle. By skillfully illustrating the problems our nation will face and presenting them in an interactive format, this book is bound to bring any teen into the political process. And it’s so much fun adults will want to read it too!
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 three facts that every young American needs to realize…
1) The United States of America was and is the greatest nation on Earth. 2) Today the United States of America is in serious trouble. 3) You will inherit the USA and its problems in just a few short years.
Now, if you are a founder of a company you would from time to time visit the company for progress reports. What if the founding fathers could see what is going on in the present day, would they be pleased or not? Well, with wit and humor, and the occasional serious note, the author David Bowman brings the founding fathers back to life in this comic strips book.
Benjamin Franklin invited George Washington and James Madison to see his latest invention, the Fantastic Future Forecaster a time machine which can transport them to the future to see the destiny of America. So they stepped into the time machine and traveled to the 21st century. You can see the excitement on their faces,
“Have they stayed true to what we intended for this nation? Have they “kept” the Republic we gave them? Have they honored the Constitution and what is stands for?” They couldn’t wait to see as the time machine lands and they open the door and the expression on their faces dropped. They wanted to know what happened to the ideals and principles, have the American people forgotten their roots?
They decided to equip the young generation with knowledge by using what Benjamin calls SKYPE to answer questions by chatting to young people.
They chat about God and Religion leading to Values and Virtues to People Govern Themselves and more. This book may or may not help young people understand why America is great or what has gone wrong with America, but it will inspire them to think what they want their America to become.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
