The Tuttle Twins series, by Connor Boyack, is one I cannot recommend highly enough. I’ve previously acquired a copy of The Tuttle Twins and the Miraculous Pencil and my kids love it. Written in a style that is educational and fun (as all childrens’ books should be), it is a good read, even for adults.
Because I can’t contain my excitement about the upcoming release of a fourth Tuttle Twins book, I’ve decided that I intend to give special attention to each of the books as they become available on Amazon. I would do so as they come out, but the eCommerce on the official Tuttle Twins site is a little wonky, and I don’t want to encourage my readers to accidentally purchase a product they didn’t intend to.
This post concerns The Tuttle Twins Learn About The Law. Just as The Miraculous Pencil is a splendid adaptation of “I Pencil”, Learn About The Law is an adaptation of Bastiat’s “The Law”. I believe “The Law” to be one of the few texts that ought to be “required reading” for any civic-minded individual. I’m not a fan of voting, but passing a test on “The Law” would be required to register to vote, if I were put in charge of the electoral process. Rather than read all 61 pages of Bastiat, though, one could get by on reading the far more digestible Tuttle Twins adaptation.
That’s all I feel compelled to write at the moment about this book, you should pick it up and read it, yourselves. I intend to read it to my kids at the earliest convenience and I’ll probably have more to add to this post afterwards; my kids are great at picking up on things that I miss and ask all the right questions.
