I Have the Right to be a Child

Publisher: Phoenix Yard

Endorsed by Amnesty International UK, this beautiful picture book details the rights of every child in words that are easy for young readers to understand. Each page is based on an article from  the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: topics include education, the environment, freedom of speech, healthcare and housing.

This is a book that invites discussion, whether you are reading at home or in the classroom. If boys and girls are different, are their rights exactly the same?  Why should any child be exposed to war? Shouldn't every child have the right to enough food and drink to grow up healthy and strong? Engaging and brightly-coloured illustrations accompany the thought-provoking text.
