The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law

I was recently given the opportunity to read The Tuttle Twins Learn About The Law by Connor Boyack (

Here is a quick blurb about what the book is about.

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!

I personally enjoyed this  book. It was so well-written and so easy to understand that I could see how a book like this could help children understand our government, the way it is supposed to work, and, sadly, how it is changing.

The views expressed in The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law are written from a Conservative point of view. As a Conservative parent wanting to find ways to explain the government and its workings to my children, I do hope there are more books to come with the Tuttle twins and their neighbor Fred. I think it is a great way to expose children to how the government works/is supposed to work, and it is written in a way that makes the complex world of government easy for children (and their parents) to understand.

One of my favorite aspects of this book was the respect shown for adults by the children, and the wisdom shared from one generation to the other. Too many times in the books our children read and the shows they watch, kids are viewed as the intelligent ones and adults are made to look like bumbling idiots. This book portrayed respectful children having a great relationship with an older neighbor.

The author, Connor Boyack is president of Libertas Institute, a public policy think tank in Utah. He is the author of several books on politics and religion, along with hundreds of columns and articles championing individual liberty.
