About the book:

‘Bronwyn Hayward’s creative masterpiece describes how we can escape the last 20 years of neo-liberal thinking and its toxic impact on our precious children today and in the future.’ Associate Professor Susan St John, nationally renowned economist and CPAG founding member.

‘In this inspiring book Bronwyn Hayward explains how children have been left out of the political process or included in only token ways, and the potential cost of this to society.'  Dr Russell Wills,  Children's Commissioner.
