Fourteen of the principles that make up the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child are reproduced in this book with various illustrators. Nicely done. A forward by Archbishop Desmond Tutu completes the book.

This book is a sweet presentation of the basic rights afforded every child worldwide as set forth by the UN. I would use this book as a read aloud in grades 3-5. In grades 6-9 & 12 I would use this book as a platform for discussing politics, war, and social issues across the globe as a part of American Government, lawmaking process, understanding laws, protection of children, collaborative writing, expressive illustrations. This book is well written, simple text for complex ideas, thought provoking, well illustrated. The foreword is written by Desmond Tutu. The back contains a complete copy of the rights of children discussed in the book and author showcase.Grades 3-5, 6-8, 12… (more)

This book explains the fourteen rights that children have and what they can fignt for. The illustrations in this book really help to understand the text and message of this book. This book is factual in the fact that is is rights/amendments that children in the US have.

It is very insightful and could be used as a great introduction to class rules or even the Bill of Rights as some are similar.
