Read this wonderful story about Dorset, Minnesota’s four-year-old mayor (yes, you heard that right, he’s not even in school yet!) and use the following questions to start a fun conversation with your kids tonight:
Bobby’s major act as mayor so far was to make ice cream the top of the food pyramid. If you were mayor of your town and you could do anything, what changes might you make? Be creative!
