Product description

Review

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.

(Annie Everall Bookseller)

Published in association with Amnesty International, this amazing collection of illustrations celebrates the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The perfect gift for both children and adults.

(Publishing News)

Published 60 years after the original Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed after the Second World War. This brilliant book contains a simplified text for younger readers and stunning illustrations from some of the world's most renowned illustrators. With books about children's rights increasingly demanded by schools, this book is needed in every classroom, and its beautiful presentation will lead to it being desired by every household.

(Bookseller)

The best books for giving are those we return to again and again. Such a book is We Are Born Free - a sumptuously illustrated exploration of the Declaration of Human Rights for young readers.

(Jake Hope Bookseller)

A children's book about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? It's a bl**dy miracle!

(Families South East)

4 stars. Lovely book celebrating the universal declaration of human rights in a way that children will understand.

(www.bettybookmark.co.uk)

A feast for the eyes and the mind providing plenty to ponder and discuss at home and school.

(Scotsman)

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Pictures sounds like a really terrible idea doesn't it. Until you see the book We Are All Born Free. In this fine and important publication, the rights are put into language that everyone can understand and illustrated by some of the finest illustrators in the world. As one teacher saId to me " I will be giving everyone this book for Christmas" - why not follow her example.

(Carousel)

The text is clearly valuable as a set of ideals for life (and rules for the playground); and the pictures are inventive rather than literal. They vary in tone - from comic to serious, childlike to sophisticated, fantastical to realistic - and use media ranging from collage to screen prints.

(Sunday Times)

The UDHR is not the most obvious fodder for a picture book but once you’ve seen We Are All Born Free you’ll wonder what took them so long… A copy in every classroom would be a good start, particularly as royalties go to Amnesty International, but ideally every child should start life with one of their own.

(Telegraph)

If I could lay down the law for a minute, I would say this book should be obligatory in every young library.

(Laurence Anholt Child Education)

'This is a BIG book abourt a BIG subject, which is accessible to very young children. (I can even think of a few grown-ups that could use it too!) The result is a fiesty, provocative and joyous celebration of freedom, peace and justice. If I could lay down the law for a minute, I would say this book should be obligatory in every library.' Laurence Anholt

(Child Education)

This is a wonderfully illustrated picture book, providing 'thirty rules for the world to live by'. It can act as a fantastic starting point in aiding children to begin to understand their role in the world.

(5-7 Educator)

The sheer joy and purposefulness of the illustrations make this a must for KS1 and 2 debate. A great idea, brilliantly realised!

(Scholastic: Read Me)

"A must read book."

(Bookwitch)

"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."

(Parents in Touch)

"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."

(Read It Daddy)

"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."

(Booktrust)
