Welcome to You Be The Judge, an interactive threaded storybook for elementary students. This story teaches core democratic values such as Pursuit of Happiness, Private Property Rights, and other Constitutional Rights.
The online story has been divided into sections. This is a modification which allows the story to load faster. And since this is a "threaded" story, you only need to download the parts of the story you need. There may be slight delays, depending on your connection speed, while each section loads. Dowloading the entire story allows you to view the story at anytime, and avoid any breaks in the story during viewing that may be caused by viewing the story online.
Feedback is always encouraged and welcome here.
