This week’s challenge focuses on the inherent rights we have as human beings. Included in these rights are specific rights that children have. The challenge comes from the theme of Blog Action Day.

Now, read this article about Malala, a 16-year-old Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban for promoting the right to education for girls. What are your thoughts about Malala?
Here is another question: Does our protagonist, Maniac Magee, have everything he is entitled to have under the rights of the child?
Hmmm. Think about it.
