Photographer's Note

Today in Brazil is the "Children's Day". The date was created in 1924 by Congressman Galdino do Valle Filho and formalized by the president Arthur Bernardes.

But only in 1960, when the brazilian toy factory "EStrela" did a promotion with Johnson & Johnson to launch the "Baby Week" and increase the sales, is the date started to be celebrated. The strategy worked and from there, the October 12 became an important date for the toy industry in Brazil.

In the photo a child playing in the Farol beach at Arraial do Cabo city. A nice thing to do when we are children.
