Win this beautiful book that celebrates every child's right to love, joy and freedom

Every Child a Song is an enchanting picture book that uses the metaphor of song to explore the unique potential of every child and all the essential things they need to thrive. 

'When you were born, a song began...'

So begins this lyrical and unique non-fiction picture book by award-winning children's author Nicola Davies. With tenderness and a good deal of heart, Nicola introduces young readers to the universal rights that every child is entitled to under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

With beautiful and deeply moving watercolour illustrations by award-winning artist Marc Martin, this is a book that encourages children, and the adults in their lives, to speak up for young people all around the world, and to treat one another with compassion and kindness.
