The Charter For Children

☰ Menu
  • I read the first two books in The Charter For Children series last night, and I thought they were excellent. Nicely written, amusing, beautifully presented. I tried them out on my assistant this morning, and she loved them too!

    Peter Hogg, Leading Constitutional Scholar

  • Each book exists in its own right as a wonderful story to share in a classroom, but as a series, the six books would create an excellent unit in almost any division in elementary classrooms.

  • Clever, quirky, humorous, informative. It is hard to beat that combination. Then add in the fact that you need this series, and these books go to the top of the 'Must Buy' list.

About Dustin

Dustin Milligan is a native of the charming village of Tyne Valley, Prince Edward Island. He currently practices law in Toronto, Ontario.

The idea for The Charter for Children first emerged when Dustin was a student at the Faculty of Law at McGill University. He was concerned about the accessibility of information pertaining to our fundamental rights and freedoms. Over the course of six years he collaborated with a host of legal professionals from all different backgrounds in order to adapt the heavy language and lessons of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms into a child-friendly format.
