What do you do when something’s not right? Don’t scream . . . Campaign! Ask Joshua Lipshaw who fought city hall for ice cream and won. This is his true story written by his mom, and it’s great way to learn about local government. The back matter includes a glossary of civic terms, but don’t get lost in the vocabulary and forget the most important thing . . . Ice Cream!
Plus this story comes from the Great Lake state of Michigan, from its author to the ice cream to the plot. Enjoy!
