Format: Paperback
Stand Up for Your Rights is a great intoduction to humanrights. Children will appreciate the detailed and well chosen artwork and the short passages contributed by children from around the world. The passages come in the form of poems, letters, interviews, and narratives. These passages are short and easily accesible to both children and adults. While the book does attempt to give a balanced view of human rights, some ethnocentric and unbalanced reporting did come through. In several cases the authors failed to explain the reasons behind human right violations. In this respect, Stand Up for Your Rights is a good resource manual for teachers and parents to go over with children, who can supplement the book with discussion or other resources. At the end of the book is a listing of organizations and ways for children to get involved with human right causes. In all, this is a gook book about human rights and I believe children will appreaciate it as well.

I originally purchased this book as background material for myself when I was teaching The Chosen at a high school in Arizona. It became instrumental in 2001 when, during the first few weeks of teaching at a new school in Missouri, Sept. 11th occurred. Using the book, I had my students research one of the articles of the Human Rights Declaration, and explain how a person, industry, country, or organization, is helping to secure this right for people around the world. It put a positive spin on a world-shattering event. The high school students LOVED the class book we created, and Human Rights became a sort-of theme for our classes the remainder of the year. Now, at a new school in Kansas, with students who are extremely sheltered from everything that is going on in the world, I am once again planning to use the book as a springboard for a similar class book project. Though I did this with high schoolers, age-appropriate projects could be done with students at any level.

Each article in the book is accompanied by international student drawings and details about human rights violations experienced personally by children around the world. It is very easy for American students to connect with their peers around the world by reading the examples set forth in the book. It makes what is happening in the world more understandable than just hearing a newscaster talk about it on tv.

I would love to see a new, post 9/11 edition.
