Praise For We Are All Born Free: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Pictures

"A beautifully diverse and vital addition to any bookshelf. The variety of illustrations is a delight, while the content is essential knowledge for children to learn."



Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this fantastic book offers a simplified text written especially to make it accessible for children. To add to its appeal, each declaration is illustrated by an internationally renowned artist or illustrator. All royalties are donated to Amnesty International. One of my favourites of the season.



"Aÿmust read book."

"Saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' certainly applies here - each of the carefully drawn illustrations conveys a really strong message and repays close attention."

"So amazingly compiled, the illustrators list reads like a "who's who" of all our favourite talented folk, and the lessons imparted here - not dumbed down, but imparted so effectively for a children's book, are more important now than ever."
