The idea of creating an event of this size, to gather talented and solidarity children of the world, came from the brazilian mirim writer Alice Victoria Rocha Silva, twelve years.

This book was exposed in The London Book Fair and the Frankfurt Book Fair, and has led the authoress to participate in various biennials of books in Brazil, as the largest in the country, the International Book Biennial of São Paulo. The book "The Chocolate Monster" has also been adapted for TV in the Program Raul Gil, on Brazilian Sytem Television (SBT), and displayed in Domingão Faustão, to the Globo system of television.

The second book in the promising career of this remarkable little authoress of "The good little Witch and the Circus Mice” - containing the foreword of Mauricío de Sousa (creator of Monica's Gang), was launched last year at the Bienal de São Paulo, already the third book "Adventures of Aurora, a very special stray Labra" is being finalized and will be released early next month, while the fourth title "Princess Malala” in honor of Malala Yousafzair will be released internationally during realization of the "International little meeting" and the income will go to the Foundation Malala.

Afinal, o que as Crianças querem dizer ao mundo?

Menino americano de apenas quatro anos, oferece 'lição' de civilidade e sabedoria ao mundo, quando decide cortar por inteiro o cabelo, para ficar 'igualzinho' ao coleguinha da escola, que usava cabelo muito baixo. O detalhe que chama atenção é que, um é branco e outro negro, não há qualquer diferença entre os dois. A iniciativa de Jax era apenas 'confundir' a professora na escola, quando ambos chegassem de cabeça raspada. A brincadeira inocente demonstra claramente que não existe diferença entre pessoas, e que o preconceito não faz parte do ingênuo e sábio universo infantil, apenas é transmitido pela sociedade dos adultos.  Com informações do Jornal Nacional/TV Globo e Jornal O Extra/RJ.
Jax e Reddy, repletos de inocência e sabedoria.

This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair. I told him that he needed a haircut this weekend. He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy. He said he couldn't wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy's so that his teacher wouldn't be able to tell them apart. He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut. 
Here's a picture of Jax and Reddy from their Christmas program. I'm sure you all see the resemblance. If this isn't proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don't know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair. Lydia Stith and Associated Press, EUA.
