The emperor loves new clothes. The fancier they are the more he likes them. So he hires two master weavers to create the best suit ever. But these master weavers are tricky...The Emperor's New Clothes is one of Hans Christian Andersen's funniest fairy tales. Accompanied by Carol Thompson's cheeky illustrations, this playful retelling will delight a whole new generation of readers, as well as draw chuckles from those who already know and love this tale.
Beautifully illustrated retellings of some of the world's favourite stories for children developing their reading confidence.
The 1960's ushered in one of the most quickly wide-spread trends up until that time...the American cowboy. This was due in part to the acquisition of television into many of the homes of the baby boomers. All of us who were 'cowboys' during this time still feel a connection with each other. From that vantage point we moved on to the days of go-go boots and from there to being flower children and wearing peace symbols and fringed vests. Our clothing became a way of expressing who we are at an individual level, rather than just an expression of our class or socio-economic status, as had been the case in the past. We enjoyed being able to express both our collective spirit and our individual natures through our clothing choices. Perhaps we haven't always realized the extent to which clothing trends and experiences shape us into the people that we become on the inside. Is it possible that our character and integrity are affected by something as simple as our clothing? It's worth thinking about and remembering those significant clothing experiences along the way.
The measuring and monitoring children's well-being is of growing importance to policymakers and those who strive to improve the lives of children everywhere. In the last decade, public attention has centered on children, a development driven by decreasing fertility in the most developed countries of the world and the postindustrial emphasis on human capital development. These developments position children at the center of the future capacity of a nation or region. Children have increasingly been identified as subjects with rights and entitlements of their own, as illustrated by the U. N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), which emphasizes a child's right to develop his or her capacities. The CRC represents a milestone both in the understanding of children and in offering principles and guidelines for policies. The rights underscored by the convention require evidence on children's well-being and theories or models for understanding their evolving capacities and development. The right to develop one's capacities illustrates a complexity of analyzing children's well-being: the analysis must encapsulate both the current standard of living and the potential for growth and future fulfillment arising from present conditions. Of course, systematic statistics on children have existed for a long time. However, new development in data and analytic resources and growing interest in childhood among social scientists have combined to advance child well-being to the forefront of research.
