Summary:

"Everyone says we have rights, but what does that mean? Can you say anything you want? Should you? This accessible illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics, and real-life situations to help kids think critically about their rights, as well as their responsibilities, when it comes to expressing themselves. Considered from the viewpoints of those who feel that expression must be controlled, those who feel that the right to freedom of expression is paramount, and witnesses to conflict around expression, this basic right is identified, examined, and put into a context that kids can use to navigate issues of how to express identity and opinion. The Freedom of Expression 101 section guides readers to a definition of rights, freedom of expression, and its opposite, censorship. The Censor section helps readers identify attitudes that lead to limiting freedom of expression. The Speechmaker section helps readers tell when freedom of expression impinges on the rights and safety of others. The Witness section has readers consider what they can do when confronted with situations where freedom of expression is threatened." --Provided by publisher.
