Protagonists of your stories

Written by adults, children's books are educational, playful, important works, indispensable for discussing childhood and getting to know children in today's world - completely different from those of decades ago.

But who better to talk about themselves, their needs and experiences, from their perspectives, if not themselves? This is the starting point of A Journey into Children's Rights , an illustrated book written by many little hands, in which girls and boys express thoughts, desires and requests directed at adults.

Despite the cut - the texts are from Italian children, aged five and six - the questions presented here represent issues common to all childhoods, anywhere on the planet.

These are reflections like this: “If adults are not intelligent, they do not think and do not protect children. If a person is intelligent and knows a lot of things, they teach it to the child, so the child grows up, becomes an adult and, if they get a child, they teach it to them, and so on…”

A journey into children's rights

Even the creators of the work were surprised by what they saw: “What impressed us most is the sense of justice, equality, social maturity, judgment, responsibility, solidarity, which we see germinating in the thoughts and concepts of children of our time”, says an excerpt from the preface written by educators Loris Malaguzzi, Marina Castagnetti, Laura Rubizzi and Vea Vecchi.

A journey into children's rights is a publication by Reggio Children, an international foundation that aims to promote the Reggio Emilia approach throughout the world. Originating from the community of Reggio Emilia, in Italy, and created by educator Loris Malaguzzi (1920-1994) , this pedagogical approach is focused on developing the child's skills, creating an independent, autonomous, confident subject who is recognized as a thinking being with a voice. in society. In Brazil, the book is being launched by the Selo Emília/Solisluna Editora partnership.
