The U.S. Supreme Court: The Keepers of the Laws of Our Land is a 28-page book that is reproducible and educational. Your kids will learn: It is called SCOTUS, America's Highest Judicial Body and the High Court. It has not always been supreme orderly in Washington in a fancy building diversified or had nine justices. The Supreme Court is where you can make a federal case out of things! The Junior Justice has to fetch the coffee! The Justices operate on a "good behavior" and can be "out to recess. "In my "opinion," the Supreme Court is one of the most important American institutions. The very nomination of a new Justice (such as Sonia Sotomayor in 2009) commands attention by all citizens. The Supreme Court can, and has, changed the face and the lives of Americans. Oyez, it is the chief defender of our Constitution. I can tell you this: those Supreme Court Justices aren't just standing around in their "briefs" - they are some busy, hardworking, dedicated, smart folks. Learn all about them!
