Rotten Sliced Bread / Children's Libertarian Books has a contest right now, where you can vote to determine the best ideas to change society. Most of it is socialist pap, but three or four of these actually have some potential. So get up there and vote !

Reason Magazine published a list of libertarian themes in children’s fiction. There are some interesting books in there if you need gift ideas.

During the last 12 years, two popular, critically acclaimed authors have written series that combine the familiar themes of rebellion and coming of age with some of the most subversive story lines seen in juvenile fiction. The novels of Lois Lowry, 68, and Margaret Peterson Haddix, 41, are thoroughly skeptical of the idea that the state should be an all-powerful benefactor. They have gained a large and loyal following, striking a receptive chord in a market not normally associated with anti-government themes.
