An inspirational celebration of the rights that all kids have under the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child, with drawings and paintings created by children from around the world. From the right to play to the right to learn to the right to a name—the United Nations thought of everything!
Written from the perspective of a child, this book explains in simple text many of the rights that are found in the United Nations’ Convention of the Rights of the Child: from the right to play, to learn, and to share thoughts freely to protection from harmful work, violence, and exploitation. Young readers will learn that each one of them is important, but together these rights help kids everywhere live healthy and happy lives. This beautifully illustrated book contains drawings and paintings created by children from around the world—the winners of an international drawing competition titled “Kids for Human Rights”— illustrating each of the rights.
