A picture book based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, I Have a Right to be a Child is endorsed by Amnesty International. Each page is based on a different article from the Convention. Topics include food and water, housing, gender, race, poverty and war. What are rights? Who has rights? What does it mean to have rights in the 21st century? What do rights mean to different children in different parts of the world? In 1989, world leaders decided that children needed a special convention incorporating all the minimum entitlements and freedoms of all children that should be respected by governments. The Convention on the Rights of the Child comprises of 54 articles and has been signed by 193 countries. This exquisitely beautiful picture book takes the articles of the Convention and translates them into a language children can understand, in a non-preachy manner and with full-page artwork to illustrate each of these articles. Topics covered include food and water, healthcare, housing, poverty, international development, gender, race, the environment, disability, education, citizenship, family, war and freedom of speech. I Have the Right to be a Child is endorsed by Amnesty International. - REVIEWS - "This book is lovely and is certainly an important addition to every child's bookcase. 'I Have the Right to Be A Child' is an essential education to all children, everywhere." -- THE GUARDIAN. "This beautifully illustrated book takes key articles of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child and presents them as deceptively simple - but open - questions that explore the nature of, necessity for, and responsibilities that must accompany our 'rights' as citizens of this planet. Every turn of the page reveals a new opportunity to explore assumptions about our entitlements as human beings, and consider the implications of turning them into a ratified treaty. For example, 'If girls and boys are different, can our rights be exactly the same?' 'Can playing be a right too?' 'How about the right to breathe clean air?'Intended to provoke both independent thought and group discussion, this slim little paperback certainly has the potential to become an immensely valuable KS2 resource - as well as being an appealing, inspiring and accessible read in its own, well, right." -- TEACH PRIMARY. "This is a book of great depth that will repay the reader on several levels. A book for every school library." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
