Editor reviews

Nicknamed The O’Reilly Factor for Kids, these pearls of wisdom from the "no spin" newsman educate and empower young listeners, offering a straightforward discussion of kids’ legal rights as they relate to school, employment, family life, and hanging out with friends. Actor Rick Adamson captures O’Reilly’s famously blunt, "no-bloviating" style as he performs Kids are Americans Too with crisp diction and fluidity, while nevertheless establishing a candid, direct tone - a realness with which teens can identify. O’Reilly offers young listeners a series of thought-provoking questions drawn from real-life legal scenarios, thereby forcing teens to think for themselves and become active, civic-minded participants in American society.

Summary

Kids are Americans too! And that means you have rights just like everybody else. But it's not enough to just say you have them. You have to know what those rights are...and are not! Luckily for you, Bill O'Reilly is back, opining for kids on that very subject: your legal rights.

O'Reilly and his coauthor, Charles Flowers, dole out the kind of blunt, cogent, common sense commentary you count on them for. Together they explore timely questions being debated in and out of courts today, including:

  • Can a kid wear an anti-gay T-shirt on campus?
  • Does a school newspaper have the right to badmouth a principal?
  • Does a mother have the right to eavesdrop on her daughter's telephone conversations?

Some of the answers will surprise you. Some will empower you. All will make you think.

Recommended by my 12 year old

My 12 year old daughter wants to be a lawyer someday. I am not a big Bill O'Reilly fan, but I thought this book might interest her on a long car trip. I downloaded it and listened to it (in its entirety) before handing it off to her.

There was much common sense to be found, and nothing to object to. It's a most level-headed presentation. My daughter loved it, and it led to some deep conversation between she and I about a variety of topics.

That alone makes it worthwhile! Over all a great book and highly recommended.

A Must-Listen for Parents!

If you have teenagers, then you almost certainly need this book. Clear, concise, and funny Bill O'Reilly does an excellent job of informing kids of their legal rights - and don't worry, parents, he's on OUR side. :) Thank you, Bill!
