Adventurous Review of The Tuttle Twins Learn about The Law
The entire Tuttle Twins series is a great option for your homeschool history library. We didn’t know we needed it when I wrote this review almost 10 years ago. In my opinion these are a must for every family, not just those who homeschool.
This book is about the Tuttle Twins, Ethan and Emily.
Geared towards the ages 6-10 crowd, I would say it was still a good read for the tweens.
I believe it would hold their attention just fine.
After a school assignment on interviewing a person whom they feel is wise, the twins go about chatting with their neighbor, Fred.
While they are trying to figure out what Fred feels is important, Fred pulls a book off of the shelf of his extensive library.
The book is title The Law, by Frederic Bastiat.
“He taught people important ideas about the government.”
Now, you know I am a homeschool mom and I also refer to myself as a Patriot.
I feel History is very important, especially American History and our children.
Fred goes on to share with the children
“God gives us our lives, and He gives us our ability to think, learn, and act.”
Fred shares how sometimes bad guys are in government too. The children realize wrong is wrong, it doesn’t matter if it a citizen or a person in the government.
The government is to protect our rights, not abuse them.
With rights come responsibilities.
I won’t share more of the book because I feel you should read it yourself.
The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law, is a children’s version of Frédéric Bastiat’s The Law, written in 1850, that clearly and concisely summarizes what the proper role of government is.
