Join us at The Blue Bunny Bookstore in Dedham Square for an open house event for educators and interested patrons on May 17th, from 7-8 p.m. Educator and author David J. Smith, creator of our award-winning curriculum Mapping the World by Heart will be presenting his new book This Child, Every Child — a groundbreaking book of statistics and stories that compare the lives of children around the world today. Using the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as a template to compare and contrast kids’ experiences and opportunities, Smith’s book introduces young readers to the world beyond their own borders and reveals the challenges children face in obtaining adequate food, clean water, health care, education, and more.Smith, a leader in international education and author of the bestselling book If the World Were a Village, felt compelled to share the dramatic and sobering facts about children around the world with young readers. “These issues are not light or easy, but they affect millions of children.” Kids Can Press, which published This Child, Every Child will donate 50% of the profits from the sales of this book to deliver books to school libraries in Haiti.Along with refreshments, raffles, and a guaranteed SUPER presentation, David’s books will be available for sale and signing. David and the FableVision Learning team will also talk about his geography product Mapping the World by Heart. Learn more about David J.
