Kids have the right to read about Palestine

Add your organization's name to the "Kids have the right to read about Palestine" campaign, which calls on two of the largest publishers of children's books- Marshall Cavendish and Scholastic- to add PALESTINE to their social studies series aimed at celebrating diversity. Join the US Campaign in endorsing this exciting campaign! Email info@theworldincludespalestine.org to add your group's name as an endorser.

Did you know there are no nonfiction publications in print for children recognizing the contributions, the history, the geography, the 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 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 publishers of children's books, Marshall Cavendish and Scholastic, urging them to add PALESTINE to their series!
