'Whoever we are, wherever we live, these are the rights of every child under the sun and the moon and the stars.'
In November 1989 the United Nations formally adopted the fifty-four principles that make up the UN Convention on the rights of the child, to ensure a better future for children worldwide. 191 of the world's 193 countries have ratified the convention, legally binding themselves to comply with its provisions.
This book interprets fourteen of the rights in a simple text that every child can understand. Stunning double page spreads from ten international cast of award-winning artists accompany the rights and there is a moving foreword from Archbishop Desmond Tutu. A gift book to treasure.
