How can children grow to realize their inherent human rights and respect the rights of others? This book explores this question through children's literature from 'Peter Rabbit' to 'Horton Hears a Who!' to Harry Potter. The authors investigate children's rights under international law - identity and family rights, the right to be heard, the right to be free from discrimination, and other civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights - and consider the way in which those rights are embedded in children's literature
The state of the world's children 2004 : girls, education and development by Carol Bellamy( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 200 million children in developing countries under 5 years of age are malnourished and malnutrition contributes directly or indirectly to 55% of the 12 million deaths in this group each year. Improvements in maternal and child nutrition have the potential to decrease the burden of chronic and degenerative diseases, malaria, AIDS, and maternal mortality. Although the technology to end malnutrition is available, preventable causes such as premature cessation of breast feeding, inattention to children's special nutritional needs, poverty, lack of access to preventive and curative health services, and discrimination against women and children perpetuate this emergency. This comprehensive UNICEF report outlines the causes, consequences, and solutions to child malnutrition. It describes the successes of programs aimed at improving women's access to education, fortifying staple foods with essential nutrients, targeting specific nutritional deficiencies (iodine, vitamin A), monitoring child growth, supporting small-scale food production, and increasing government social sector spending on nutrition in several countries. Overall, experience suggests the superiority of solutions that involve those most directly affected by poverty and malnutrition, combine a balance of approaches and sectors, and recognize nutrition as a human right. Communities can be trained to assess their own nutritional priorities and monitor program effectiveness. The report also includes statistical tables on nutrition, health, education, demographic factors, economic indicators, women, and the rate of progress by country
