Cultura - Una biblioteca a la altura de los niños Martes 13 de noviembre de 2012Yanet Aguilar Sosa | El Universal yanet.aguilar@eluniversal.com.mx Hace apenas unos meses, los cerca de 25 mil libros que ha reunido IBBY México en sus 33 años de historia -mil 200 de ellos libros antiguos de todo el mundo congregados en la Colección Margadant- se encontraban, casi en su totalidad, en cajas de cartón pues la asociación fundada en 1979 no tenía espacio para ponerlos a disposición de niños, jóvenes, mediadores de la lectura, profesores e investigadores. Hoy ese reservorio, que es el más importante de todo el país, tiene un espacio único en la colonia Mixcoac. Una biblioteca para la comunidad. Ayer, bajo la sombra de una araucaria que tiene más de 100 años de vida y supera los 29 metros de altura -ubicada en el jardín principal de la casona- la biblioteca abrió su primera página de esta nueva historia. México, a leer

What's Dangerous About the Word "We" To practice empathy, another person needs to be involved--someone we consider completely different from urselves, with a style, interests, feelings, emotions and tastes totally their own and separate from ours. With our kids we generally tend to sweep away those differences during day-to-day life as a way to feel close to them. We use a language that doesn't pave the way towards empathy, because we don't see them as separate beings with unique and personal inner worlds that we should respect and understand, even though we might not necessarily share it. We leave them out, because deep down we're only refering to ourselves, using the comfort of "we." Let's not get used to speaking for our children, thinking for them, feeling for them, and instead open the door to plenty of surprises which will most certainly begin appearing, because they will now have the space to do so.

Sing-along Songs One of the most fun group participation activities for family and friends is to engage in sing-along songs. The essence of a sing-along song is that it has a simple enough melody and memorable lyrics for everyone to easily learn. Many of these popular songs have been around for over a century and are taught to children as part of their grade school music education. "Michael Row the Boat Ashore" is a very well known sing-along song. It was a traditional folk song written in the 1860s that became a huge hit in the early 1960s by The Highwaymen. The following sing-along songs are widely known and appreciated by all ages. She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain Not many songs over a century old are still as popular as "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain," which originated in the late nineteenth century by an unknown composer. What A Wonderful World The song "What A Wonderful World" was first popularized in 1967 by Louis Armstrong and in 1999 was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
