Great concept, lacks real storytelling
The twins interview their neighbor, and he answers their questions. There's no real story here. I like the message, but it reads like propaganda. My 5 year old liked the book somewhat, but he clearly wasn't thrilled. Kids want to feel something when they listen to a book. They want to take a journey. They want characters who struggle and learn from their experiences. The twins learn by politely asking questions and taking notes. That's not very engaging. It is a little weird. Still, it does successfully get its points across. I applaud the author and illustrator for their effort, because the subject matter is both worthwhile and underrepresented in children's literature.

A good intro to law
I got a promo code for a free audio book (the catch was I wrote an honest and fair review) and I personally have gotten the hard copies for myself.
I love that the audio and the book are the same so my kids can read along with the story teller. She did a really nice job giving each character a voice and keeping even my little 6 yr old boy interested. I like that it is a good introduction to what a law is and is not with out going into to much lawyer speech. I'm looking forward to the other books and how they are.

Just listened to the first book in the Tuttle Twins series. Interesting little story that puts key principles in the mind of young readers while pointing them on to primary sources (Bastiat's "The Law). Long enough to be a good short story. Short and serious enough to achieve the effect of a catechism, but without destroying the story. Not a moralist tale, either, because it doesn't say, "Be good," but rather, "Know truth and love wisdom."
Written at a level that my son can definitely grasp and I can also enjoy. Good conversations ahead!
