Dear Reader,

You've probably heard a child say, "That's not fair!" at some point — and most likely you've said it, too! The topics I cover in my new book explore various rights and freedoms that appeal to children ages 7 to 11, and are told through the antics of Mayor Moe and his sometimes-wacky city councillors. 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? Each story in the book concludes with an extended discussion of the rights and freedoms featured, along with three questions to ponder, encouraging children to look at all sides of each issue, which engages critical-thinking skills and fosters empathy for other points of view. 

Email me at for a chance to win a signed copy of my book.

All the best,
Danielle S. McLaughlin
