A joyfully illustrated collection, inspired by the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. Double page spreads raise up the voices of 14 young activists from across the globe, from Syrian refugee, Mohamad Al Jounde, awarded the International Children’s Peace Prize (2017), to Mayra Avellar Neves who highlighted children’s lack of safety in favelas, to Iqbal Masih who fought back against forced child labour. Each spread is clearly ‘stamped’ in the corner with the right being addressed and, an easy, conversational text flows along the bottom. A final spread provides mini bios of further campaigners, including ‘our’ very own Oscar Anderson, who has spoken up for the rights of Disabled young people. The 54 articles of the Convention are spelt out at the back, alongside a list of international children’s rights organisations. The book is, of course, Amnesty-endorsed. “This book is wonderful. If you’re a Rights Respecting School, it is a must! The stories are clear, insightful and sometimes challenging.” (Sonia, Headteacher, Letterbox Library reviewer). Age 7-11, Papeback 32pp
