This book is lovely and is certainly an important addition to every child's bookcase. 'I Have the Right to Be A Child' is an essential education to all children, everywhere. --Guardian Children's Books
This beautifully illustrated book takes key articles of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child and presents them as deceptively simple - but open - questions that explore the nature of, necessity for, and responsibilities that must accompany our 'rights' as citizens of this planet. Every turn of the page reveals a new opportunity to explore assumptions about our entitlements as human beings, and consider the implications of turning them into a ratified treaty. For example, 'If girls and boys are different, can our rights be exactly the same?' 'Can playing be a right too?' 'How about the right to breathe clean air?' Intended to provoke both independent thought and group discussion, this slim little paperback certainly has the potential to become an immensely valuable KS2 resource - as well as being an appealing, inspiring and accessible read in its own, well, right. --Teach Primary
This is a book of great depth that will repay the reader on several levels. A book for every school library. --School Librarian journal

Out of this came a discussion as to our responsibilities as world citizens, and as members of our own community.
Whilst it may appear quite basic, it is a great source for detailed and in depth discussions.
