Image: Stand for Children | Hardcover: 32 pages | by Marian Wright Edelman (Author), Adrienne Yorinks (Illustrator). Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; 1st edition (May 15, 1998)
National Stand For Children Day (1996)
-- On June 1, 1996, over 300,000 people rallied in Washington, DC, for Stand for Children Day at the Lincoln Memorial. This event was the largest demonstration for children in US history, and it also sent a clear message about how strongly Americans felt about improving the lives of children across the country. Rosa Parks, a civil rights movement icon, made a statement that challenged the nation's people to commit themselves to improving the lives of children, saying, If I can sit down for justice, you can stand up for children.

Read: Stand for Children, by Marian Wright Edelman, Adrienne Yorinks
-- Adults familiar with Edelman, president and founder of the Children's Defense Fund, will hear her voice in this picture-book call to action on behalf of children everywhere, comprising portions of a speech she gave at a rally for children's rights advocates. Her message of inclusion is appropriately carried out in the effective artwork.

Image: What Do You Stand For? Character Building Card Game Cards | Cards: 60 pages | by Barbara A. Lewis (Author). Publisher: Free Spirit Publishing; Gmc Crds edition (September 1, 2006)What Do You Stand For?
-- Turn learning into a game, and kids will want to play. This card game spotlights ten top character traits: Caring, Citizenship, Cooperation, Fairness, Forgiveness, Honesty, Relationships, Respect, Responsibility, and Safety. To win, players collect cards of each trait. Each card features a What If scenario or question about a character that gets kids thinking about what they would do - and what they stand for. Meant to be played with adult supervision (a teacher, counselor, or youth worker familiar with character education themes), the game includes an insert with rules and basic character education concepts.

Image: I Have the Right to Be a Child | Hardcover: 48 pages | by Alain Serres (Author), Aurelia Fronty (Illustrator), Helen Mixter (Translator). Publisher: Groundwood Books (May 22, 2012)
I Have the Right to Be a Child
-- With a very simple text accompanied by rich, vibrant illustrations, a young narrator describes what it means to be a child with rights — from the right to food, water, and shelter to the right to go to school, to the right to be free from violence to the right to breathe clean air, and much more. The book emphasizes that these rights belong to every child, whether black or white, small or big, rich or poor, born here or elsewhere. It also shows that knowing and discussing these rights are the first steps toward respecting them.

Oscar's Rotten Birthday
Oscar the Grouch's Birthday
-- June 1st is Oscar the Grouch's birthday, and since his introduction to the well-known PBS show Sesame Street in 1969, he has been a trash-loving character cherished by all. Along with his pets, Slimy, the Worm, and Fluffy the Elephant, Oscar is sure to give us a humble reminder of why he has such a disdain for humanity.

Image: Why Flip a Coin?: The Art and Science of Good Decisions | Paperback: 206 pages | by H. W. Lewis (Author). Publisher: Wiley (August 27, 1998)
Why Flip a Coin
Flip a Coin Day
-- Julius Caesar is credited with starting the practice of flipping a coin to make decisions. His head was on one side of every Roman coin, so heads determined the winner in each flip. People thought heads meant that Caesar agreed with the decision. The coin flip was used in severe litigation involving property, marriage, and criminal guilt. How many lawyers would be out of a job if we went back to flipping a coin as a form of justice?
