That’s Not Fair!: Getting to Know Your Rights and Freedoms (CitizenKid)
That’s Not Fair is a book where a very silly government, including the mayor and city counsel, makes laws trying to make the city more fair but the laws usually have unexpected consequences. The book has nine stories about diversity, freedom of the press and more state matters. At the end of each story there are a few questions about what you think is fair. For instance, in one there is too much light pollution and the city counsel makes a law that you can’t have any lights on after dark so people can see the stars. But people end up getting robbed and hurt.
When I looked at it I thought it would be for four to six or seven year olds because of the silly cartoon drawings. This book has 44 pages and has a lot of text on each page. But, I shouldn’t have judged a book by its cover. This book was really fun and interesting. I learned a lot about how law is not always black and white. Now I realize that this book is probably best for ages 6-10. This is a great book for you if you love to laugh and want to learn about government in a fun way.
