    Hi folks,

    I'd like to offer the tip that this Wednesday, Nov 20th is the 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. There's a beautiful version of it with clever graphics in child-friendly language here: 

    I've been sharing this with school and city librarians here in Cambridge, MA, and some short-notice markings of the occasion are in the works.

    Kind regards,
    Robin Chen

    For those who would like further reading, I've been recommended and intend to read Hidden in Plain Sight: The Tragedy of Children's Rights from Ben Franklin to Lionel Tate (The Public Square) https://www.amazon.com/dp/0691126909/

    What a great resource! Thank you for sharing! I will share this within the NAEYC's Children's Global Issues community as well. Are you coming to Nashville this week? If you are, please join us at the 2019 Children's Global Issues forum business meeting on Friday, 11/22, 11am -12pm, at Electronic Room, Omni Nashville. We will have more discussions around topical issues, and share best practices from all over the world.
