Description

Note: This is the AMERICAN SCHOOLS edition of Childhood Regained. Look for STUDENT EDITIONS and a TEACHERS' GUIDE out soon.

These eye-opening but hopeful stories and a poem bring to life some of the situations faced by millions of young Asian children working long hours with little or no pay in factories, mines, quarries, commercial farms, and elsewhere.
This book also includes study questions and answers for each story, brief factual information on conditions in various industries in South Asia, a glossary, student activities, and information on how students can help their peers across the globe.
Educators: These captivating fictional stories have been organized and edited by a former middle-grade teacher and teacher-librarian. Told through the voices of Asian child workers in various situations, they are the perfect medium to engage your students and help them gain awareness of the situations of many of their peers across the globe. These stories will make a valuable additional resource for any social studies program, especially for students aged 10 to 15.

"Each well-researched story in Childhood Regained is told from the viewpoint of child workers, starting with the harsh realities of their lives and reaching hope-filled, satisfying conclusions. Young readers will be impacted by the unfamiliar worlds depicted in these transformative stories and may gain a new appreciation for all they have and a desire to help make a difference in the world. Highly recommended."
~ Karen Autio, award-winning author of books for young readers
"While journeying through Childhood Regained, my students have gained a higher level of empathy and increased global awareness. I am excited to share this important book and recommend it to other educators and students."
~ Natalie Brown, grade 7 teacher, Emily Carr School, London, Ontario
