The Tuttle Twins Learn About The Law
Tuttle Twins, #1
by Connor Boyack
Paperback, 62 pages
Published April 23rd 2014

Children are often taught that government protects our life, liberty, and property, but could it be true that some laws actually allow people to hurt us and take our things? Join Ethan and Emily Tuttle as they learn about property, pirates, and plunder. With the help of their neighbor Fred, the twins will need to figure out what they can do to stop the bad guys in government!
The very first thing that grabbed my attention about this book is how beautiful and colorful the illustrations are. This is a high quality publication printed on thick paper with rich imagery. It will stand the test of time. I gave it to my 8 year old to read and she gave The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law two thumbs up. She found the early reader book “interesting and educational.”
We later read it aloud as a family and she STILL remembered the facts, the premise, and many little details. That says a lot to me when, after a few weeks away from a book, my children still remember it.
As a mother and patriot, I loved the idea that right is right and wrong is wrong. The law is applied in every aspect of our lives and affects each and every one of us. Those in government can either further our freedom and help us succeed, or they can take our hard earned money and give it away. The concept of legal plunder is introduced in beginner terms and broken down for children as are Frederic Bastiat’s philosophy from his book “the Law.”
Connor Boyack has given us a wonderful teaching tool and roots to interest even the youngest mind about the rightful place of government. His main character Fred gardens, cans, and has a library overflowing with books ( my kind of role model.) We loved the Tuttle Twins and we are excited for book 2! Well done Connor.
