"We are all born free and equal.
We all have our own thoughts and ideas.
We should all be treated in the same way,
These rights belong to everybody,
whatever our differences."
I loved the paraphrasing of the thirty articles by Amnesty International and the collective art work was simply amazing. The `round the world flavor was evident and I recognized the styles of many of the artists who contributed to this work. In the back of the book are the thirty articles and a yearbook presentation fo the artists, each with a miniature biography beneath their photograph. There are additional international Amnesty International addresses and web site addresses. This book should be in every home and classroom . . . without exception!
I am showing it to 8 to 10 yr olds
I think it's a good age to start explaining what the rights are and what they mean
it's something that could be made cheaper and made compulsory learning starting at very young ages to get tomorrow's generation understanding what it all means to them. Teach them about the UN what it means and how it affects children of today, adults of tomorrow.
This hardcover book was easily purchased from Amazon
Buy it if you want your kids to read in words what it is to be a decent human being...with the bonus of famous illustrators being whacked into one book.
Amnesty International put this book together with the support of the illustrators and a blurb by both John Boyne [The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas] and David Tennant [Dr Who].
It's mind-blowing that these rights were made nearly seventy years ago and Amnesty International is still fighting to have so many of them recognised and carried out. Australia's government might want to take a good hard look at Articles 14 and 15 and Lessac's illustration of a crammed boat. Occasionally I invest in a picture book simply to remind me of the bigger picture: this is one of those books.
