what a lovely idea! Since I've been bringing with my 2 y.o. son to the Liberty sq. occasionally, Im sure that would be a great help for activists who are also full time parents, like myself.
Ive being on the media group since last week, and could do that job only when my son was taken care of by his dad, who works full time 9-6. So I was working with media team only weekend and nights.
I was talking to Kristin yesterday, and we discussed the idea of a little kids circle. I don't think I've met Metthew and Kelley yet, would love to talk to you guys tomorrow, if you're around.
Im Maria, if you could find me and my son tomorrow around media station somewhere would be awesome.
Nicolas, the book sounds fantastic, I'd love to take a look!

I have a story book called Tales for Little Rebels: A Collection of Radical Children's Literature, with stories ranging from Dr. Seuss to Bolshevik sponsored "Fairy Tales for Worker's Children". Let me know if you would like this!

I would like to coordinate another Family Day like I did at Bloombergville, the parents and kids loved it, and wanted to do more similar actions. It was a great real world experience for families that wanted to teach their kids about social and economic justice. I'm not sure if I can make it happen this week end but maybe the weekend after? Interested?

In an effort to make the General Assembly more accessible, some of us have been talking about coordinating a childcare center. I don't expect that to fully materialize for another few days, but in the meantime, I want to reach out to folks again to see if there's is any interest in contributing to this endeavor.
Or, if you're a parent, let me know if this would be of use to you. You can trust me; I'm a graduate student for elementary education and am a third grade teacher. The other person who has expressed interest, Kristin, also has a background in education and is currently a substitute teacher.
While we're waiting for more folks to join in, I'm going to try to obtain and bring all sort of relevant supplies to Liberty Plaza--picture books, watercolors, boardgames, etc. Any other suggestions?
Anyone doing outreach, please mention that such a project is in the works. I think it will encourage a lot more parents to come and get involved!
