    Set in City this book tells in six short stories how Mayor Moe and the Councillors try to solve the city's problems with new laws how sometime these new laws have unexpected conseuences how every single law has an impact in citizen's rights and freedoms granted by democracy and how difficult can be sometimes know what it's really fair In a way easy to understand by kids laws such as freedom of religion the right to privacy and the right of eual treatment are explainedKids are strongly encouraged to think critically each time they think something is unfair trying to answer uestions like Why was the law made? Will it work? Could there be unexpected results?I really loved this book and think its approach is amazing Usually topics related to politics and citizenship are not kids' first choice but I would say That's not fair it's a winner I'm glad not only I read this book but I discovered through it the CitizenKid seriesI received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFind children's book reviews in Reviews in Chalk

    Well here's one you don't see every day A book for kids on politics I don't like politics and I won't go into them but I'm one of those non denominational democrats with a few Lutheran views that republicans love The thing is I detest speaking of the three no no's weather religion and politics when it comes to life The one thing we can never avoid is human rights We have right and freedoms and this book That's Not Fair Getting to Know Your Rights and Freedoms by Danielle S McLaughlin dumbs it down for children to understand and appreciate It's a book that's so nicely written and illustrated I actually carried no ualms in sharing for the full review Lucy The Easter Bunny is nextBook provided by Goodreadscom and Danielle S McLaughlin for an honest review

    There are six scenarios in here where children and adults maybe are encouraged to consider the impact of decisions that are made by a mayor and city council While I love this series CitizenKid the text in this book seemed overly long and convoluted But maybe that's because it is dealing with subject matters that are complicated I found that the complex text in combination with the complexity of the odd characters was just too much I got bored but then I always get bored when discussing politics

    Okay so super informational text that I do think is of value to children However I don’t think it is the most engaging for children because to be completely honest most of the book is filled up with words Not that this is a problem but the cover is deceiving to the style the book is going to be I do not see a younger student picking this book up and understanding what is going on However that being said the illustrator did do a really good job with mixing up styles of the pages Some with double page spreads bleeds and others with boarders and text boxes

    I loved this book I thought it did a fantastic job of explaining rights and freedoms in a way that would both make sense to kids and would appeal to their innate sense of justiceThe book would work best as a parent child or teacher class read aloud Certainly a fourth or fifth grader could pick this up on their own and read it and I would put it in any library for that reason But the conversations that can and should come up around the rights and freedoms are what will really make this bookIt could easily lead into how our democracy works It looks at the issues from a lot of perspectives and taps into SEL ideas we work with in our school It think it would also be an excellent jumping off point to talk about how not all people enjoy these freedoms we like to think of as being fundamental and essentialI do wish Mayor Moe wasn’t such a bungling idiot because things in life are not uite so cut and dry and I think children are very capable of grasping gray area conversations Mayor Moe is pretty much always the culpable party for taking away freedoms Injustice comes from a lot of places and not just one person which is how the book makes it seem On the flip side I know kids will grasp that Mayor Moe is a stand in for those people and ideasConsidering our current political climate and the circus that is our presidential election this would be an excellent book to have out I will be working through it with my daughter soon and if I had third grade in the library this year this would have been the first half of our year

    That's not Fair is part of the CitizenKid collection written by Danielle S McLaughlin It provides an exploration of the rights and freedoms of citizens in a democracy through a series of six short stories starring Mayor Moe and the councillors of a sometimes wacky city In each story there is a problem or concern that the council andor Mayor Moe think they can fix by passing a law Unfortunately there is usually fallout from the law that they did not consider At the end of each story there are a series of short uestions for the reader to consider and discuss that will encourage critical thinking The topics covered in this book include religious freedom unreasonable search safety regulations freedom of the press peaceful protest and eual opportunity book is a must for school and classroom libraries I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    This is an interesting workbook Obviously written for a general commonwealth audience this can be used by most countries that use English Common law It might confuse teachers and kids in the United States however because mayors here do not wear chains of office and most of the rights mentioned here are in the Bill of Rights which are never brought up in the storyGood scenarios though of each right such as freedom of speech freedom to assemble freedom of privacy and such Each time the mayor gets a new law passed that he thinks will make things better but it only takes away a basic rightThis would be a good book to use as talking pointsMy only ualms about this book is I'm not sure what the age it is aiming for If you are using monsters then I would think this would have to be shorter text and if you are aiming for older age group then you would not be using monstersThanks to Netgalley for supplying this book for an honest review
