Dreams of Freedom

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Review

Dreams of Freedom is a celebration of champions of freedom throughout history. Amnesty International has collected the words of Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, Anne Frank, Malala Yousafzai, Aung San Suu Kyi, and many more. These words are presented along with awe-inspiring illustrations from illustrators including Shirin Adl, Ros Asquith, Barroux, Chris Riddell, and Oliver Jeffers.

An essential book that not only introduces children to the importance of human rights, freedom, and the history of these concepts, but also to a wonderful variety of illustrations. The wealth of diversity - from the experiences relayed in the quotes from the freedom champions, to the spreads they come in - make this book a priceless gem.

Dreams of Freedom follows We Are All Born Free. All royalties from the sale of these books will be donated to Amnesty International.
