An Extraordinarily Important Book for and About Children

Indeed, this is a beautiful book; the work of the superb illustrators in this book (for example, Rachel Isadora, Jerry Pinkney) have graced many wonderful picture; here these extraordinarily talented artists use their precious gifts to convey a supremely important message. Herein lies the book's true value, the central tenets of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified in 1989, a decade after the 1979 UN Year of the Child, in

I'm auditing a course on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. As I was working on it, I kept thinking it would be great to have a picture book of this important document. Then I found this book. It isn't complete, but it covers the most important parts of the CRC. Each page features a different illustrator. It would be a wonderful complement to The Big Book For Peace and On the Wings of Peace. Highly recommended!

Why I love it: This book is so lovingly made it’s impossible not to love it. Each page has a full spread of the artists visualization of the right that is written below. Each page is gripping in it’s love and tenderness. A couple are cute, like the one where Rubette Cole paints a baby head just starting to bloom from a flower and in a progression shows how he grows up to be a young man running to start his own life. Most are serious children, beautifully painted, but all are happy and healthy. A ...more

For every child, is a book promoting the rights of children in words and pictures. The book includes 14 of the 54 rights and explains to children how these apply to them. Each double page relates to a different right of the child and is supported by an illustration by a different author. The pictures are extremely clear and can be used independently to encourage thinking and discussion.

This non-fiction book could be used as a resource in PSHE as it could encourage children to think about these

I like the idea of this book but have a problem with its failure to deal with children's participation rights - bored as all get out with the focus on protection and provision - these rights are meaningless unless we see them as offering children a way to be active agents of their own lives!

Yes yes yes! The UN rights of a child distilled. A world that honors these would be a wonderful world indeed.
