The Sandbox Revolution
Raising Kids for a Just World
Edited by Lydia Wylie-Kellermann

How do we, as parents, cultivate in our children a love of the earth, a cry for justice and a commitment to nonviolence? Where do we place our bodies so we teach our kids that resistance is crucial and change is possible? The Sandbox Revolution calls upon our collective wisdom to wrestle with the questions, navigate the challenges, offer concrete practices, and remind parents of the sacredness of the work. Written by parents who are also writters, pastors, teachers, organizers, artists, gardeners, and activists, this anthology offers a diversity of voices and experiences on topics that include education, money, anti-racism, resistance, spirituality, disabiltiy justice, and earth care.

“As someone who was raised by activist parents, and as a parent who has brought my own children up in a movement for peace, justice, and equity, I appreciate The Sandbox Revolution. The essays in this book will challenge and comfort all those interested in raising generations of conscious and committed young people." —Liz Theoharis, co-chair of the Poor People's Campaign, editor of We Cry Justice: Reading the Bible with the Poor People's Campaign

"This is the one parenting book I wish I'd had years ago, because the lenses of justice it presents—which we rarely discuss in the context of parenting—are the precise matters that affect our children most, from the day of their birth through the rest of their lives." —Beth Swedeen, disability advocate and Executive Director of Wisconsin Board of People with Developmental Disabilities
