United Nations Day – Resources

Thanks, DGo, for prompting me to update my own list of resources good for UN Day.

First of all, here are some Resource Lists of books in our library — and a selection of picture books (suitable for read-alouds) will be available this morning in a basket on Kalimah’s side-desk counter in AMK — and a similar basket will be given to Kathryn (KMc) in Tampines.

Second, here is a list of web links related to UN Day — collected via Diigo, the social bookmarking site.  (All the links that Deb initially sent me are included, plus others.)

The links are roughly organized into the following sections:  Videos, Things for kids to do, Children around the world, World stats/maps, and United Nations info.

Check out the World stats/maps section for videos showing the “If the world were a village….” — and if you want to see numbers flashing with up-to-the-second stats on population, births, deaths, etc., go to WorldOMeters.
