OLPC: Downloadable Version of Wikipedia for Kids

I've been thinking about One Laptop Per Child (OLPC). I was thinking that if the laptop is going to be the child's way to learn about the world, it would be very helpful to have a downloadable version of Wikipedia written for kids.

It might also be helpful to "tag" various portions of the content so that the content varied slightly depending on the child's age.
