About

Finding My Magic: Children's Rights Series is an animated series of 12 episodes for 4-11 year olds that teaches children how to look after themselves, each other and what their rights are. The series is inspired by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and features Olympic and World Champion gold medalist Cathy Freeman OAM, as an animated character. Finding My Magic  Children's Rights Series was created by psychologist Eve Ash together with Save the Children, Australia, and follows the success of the multi award winning Introductory Series

The 12 short episodes have identifiable engaging characters and stories, and each episode takes an in depth look at a right and delivers it in a clear and easily understood manner for a young audience. The accompanying Guide for Teachers is a great resource to enrich the learning experience, complete with discussion questions, games and exercises for children.

Cathy Freeman OAM brings an enthusiastic reality to her animated character, Catherine, the central character she voices. Catherine communicates, questions and stands up for rights of others and in the last episode, bravely tells the class about the Stolen Generations.
