Then, they use THIS pyramid as a representation of what they see happening in our nation today.

By using these two pyramids, young readers are given a simple visual to help them understand the difference between then and now… and remember it! A multitude of seemingly unrelated concepts (everything from the need for values in society to the dangers of big government) are taught with clarity and cohesiveness as they fit into these two pyramids.
