Kids Have the Right to Read About Palestine

The world includes Palestine! Wouldn't it be great if kids could read about it?

The World Includes Palestine

(WASHINGTON D.C.) - Did you know that children have no books in their classroom or library that recognize the contributions, history, geography, government, trade, lifestyle, language, arts, leisure and food of the people of Palestine?

The "Kids Have the Right to Read About Palestine" campaign is calling on editors of social studies series found in juvenile collections in libraries both public and private throughout English speaking countries to add the title PALESTINE to their series aimed at celebrating diversity, allowing young readers a chance to see how people live in faraway lands.

Send a message - with just one click - to two of the largest international publishers of children's books, Marshall Cavendish and Scholastic, urging them to add PALESTINE to their series!

See below and our web site for more ways you can take action to encourage publishers to include Palestine titles in their social studies series.
