Description
This unique addition to the CitizenKid collection, written by Danielle S. McLaughlin, provides an accessible 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, the councillors are first presented with a problem, and the group then makes a decision to address the problem with a new law, only to discover later there were unintended consequences. There is one councillor, Bug, who objects to each decision being proposed by commenting, "That's not fair!" --- a sentiment familiar to children, who have an innate sense of justice. The topics are child-friendly: Should you be allowed to search someone's bag because you think they could have something of yours? Does it make sense to have a law that states people can say only nice things? Conclusions for each story include an extended discussion of the rights and freedoms featured in the story, along with three questions to ponder: Why did the councillors make their decision? Did the new law achieve its purpose? Were there any unexpected results? There are no right answers given. Instead children are encouraged to look at all sides of each issue, which engages their critical thinking skills and fosters empathy for other points of view. This book would be perfect for sparking spirited discussions on civics lessons and inspiring children to become involved citizens. The bright and humorous illustrations by Dharmali Patel keep the interest level high. A Note for Parents and Teachers and definitions of the rights and freedoms covered in each story are included at the end of the book. AGES: 7-11 ILLUSTRATOR: Dharmali was born in Mumbai, India. As a kid, she was fascinated with the world of animation. In 2000, she obtained a diploma in Applied Arts with a major in illustration. She explored different painting techniques and mediums during this stage and enjoyed creating illustrations using spray paint. After graduating, Dharmali started working in the animation industry in Mumbai. Her desire for adventure and thirst to learn more about the animation process drew her to the Vancouver Film School. She graduated from the Classical Animation Program in 2004 and started working in the North American animation industry. Dharmali has worked on a number of productions airing on Teletoon, the Cartoon Network and Nicktoons UK, as well as projects with Warner Bros. and Disney.
