I found this interesting animated (though not exactly for kiddos) video by Why Poverty?, covering the history of poverty and outlook for the future. It was published this January, so very recent, too. If you have an hour, it's an interesting watch. Warning- it's not particularly cheerful or hopeful, in fact when the credits started rolling I just said "That sucks." But, often with these topics, that is the unfortunate reality of our current situation. So, better to learn about it than ignore it, I think!
