1.   Kids Have Rights Too!
Written by
Janine Scott
This concise history describes the evolution of the idea of children’s rights and the major events in the struggle for children’s rights from the 18th century to the present. The author uses a multitude of historic and contemporary photographs and anecdotes about the experiences of real children to illustrate topics including child labor, sweatshops, bonded labor and discrimination against children with disabilities. She also chronicles the civil and political activities that led to early labor laws and eventually to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
[Grade Level: 3 - 6]
