good book:Tales for Little Rebels

With politics and tomorrows election on everyone's mind I thought it was appropriate to post this fun children's book: Tales for Little Rebels. It's an illustrated book that covers a broad range of leftist political theories and revolutionary events.
below are a few excerpts
Rather than teaching children to obey authority, to conform, or to seek redemption through prayer, twentieth-century leftists encouraged children to question the authority of those in power. Tales for Little Rebels collects forty-three mostly out-of-print stories, poems, comic strips, primers, and other texts for children that embody this radical tradition. These pieces reflect the concerns of twentieth-century leftist movements, like peace, civil rights, gender equality, environmental responsibility, and the dignity of labor.

Clearly my unborn and not-at-all existent children need this.

I really want to buy that for my nieces and nephew but I'm pretty sure my sister would not look too kindly on that.

Ha! But I think it's a little safer than the Bill O'Reilly for Kids book.
