New books for young readers encourage socialist values

“Good children’s fiction cultivates empathy, imagination, social conscience, and historical awareness. Some of the best children’s novels written during the early twentieth century also raise class consciousness—Natalie Savage Carson’s The Family Under the Bridge, for example; socialist E. Nesbit’s Railway Children, Eleanor Estes’s The Hundred Dresses, and the original Mary Poppins books, which are wonderfully critical of capitalism and give magical superpowers to a nanny and her working-class friends.

While the politics of these older books hold up well, it’s hard to miss how very white the characters are. Fortunately, a new wave of multicultural, politically attuned children’s fiction is now hitting the shelves. Thanks in part to a movement called “We Need Diverse Books,” many new novels for middle graders and young adults include more people of color, gay and lesbian characters, ethnic and religious minorities, and the differently abled.”

Rapist Cop Stephen Mitchell Released From Prison With A Serious Public Warning From His daughter.

Hey gang. 
This one is coming from the Mirror, A UK Site. 

Here is the link to the article and a few quotes.   Rapist Cop Rleased 

Rapist cop Stephen Mitchell is today branded a psychopath who will always be a danger to women by his own DAUGHTER.

She gave the chilling assessment after the Sunday People revealed how the sex predator was freed after just seven years behind bars.

The decision sparked outrage from 50-year-old Mitchell’s victims – who could number as many as 30.

The pervert police constable was warned by the judge who sentenced him that he might never be released.

But in a damning interview, Mitchell’s daughter Abbey, 22, has revealed how her father…

■ TERRORISED her with violence when she was growing up.

■ BOMBARDED her with phone calls from behind bars, saying ‘You will ­always be my little girl’.

■ And she believes he FOOLED ­parole chiefs into thinking he was a changed man by taking sewing and embroidery classes in jails.

Abbey said: “My father is a ­psychopath and he will always be a danger to women.

“He’s pulled the wool over the eyes of the Parole Board but he’s not changed a bit.”

Abbey was just 15 when she ­discovered her father had raped and sexually abused vulnerable women, including heroin addicts and a disabled girl, after offering them help while they were in custody at a police station in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne.

He was given two life sentences at Newcastle crown court in 2011 after being found guilty of two rapes, three indecent assaults and misconduct.
