How do you describe liberty to a 7-year-old? Should your preteen care about the government? Are your kids learning about proper political principles in class?
For too long, parents have been at the mercy of professional curriculum developers to instruct their children. History is watered down, key principles omitted altogether, and time and attention given to things of lesser importance. Freedom-loving parents have long been left alone to shoulder the burden of educating their children and passing down a love of liberty.
While there are many books to teach these ideas to adults, there has been a profound void in the children’s literature market. The Tuttle Twins series aims to close the gap, helping parents convey the principles of liberty to their kids in a fun way.
Each book in this series will focus on a different subset of individual liberty. The first book, The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law, is a children’s version of Frédéric Bastiat’s The Law, written in 1850, that clearly and concisely summarizes what the proper role of government is. With an engaging storyline and bright illustrations, kids are exposed to the fundamentals of freedom in an easy and enlightening format.
Subsequent books will focus on the free market, the non-aggression principle, personal responsibility, protectionism, and a variety of other issues—all boiled down to core concepts that children ages 6-10 can easily grasp.
