Kids Draw the News

New York Times

Are you following the New York Times project Kids Draw the News? Each week they ask children to illustrate a news article. This week's topic got my attention, as it hits quite literally close to home for me — the cleaning up of the Gowanus Canal. But it brings up the broader issue of how to raise civic-minded children.

Do you read the paper with your kids? Bring up issues at the dinner table?

To see the entries and submit your own, go to the New York Times.
