9780099408659: For Every Child

:'Whoever we are, wherever we liveThese are the rights of every child under The sun, and the moon and the stars.'In November 1989 the United Nations formally adopted 54 principles which make up the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. From the right to a name and a nationality to the right to education and play and special protection for disabled children, the fourteen rights most pertinent to young children have been carefully chosen and interpreted here in simple language. 191 of the world's 193 countries have ratified the Convention making themselves legally bound to comply with its obligations. There is a wonderful international cast of acclaimed illustrators: from Britain, Shirley Hughes, Babette Cole, John Burningham and Peter Weevers; from the US Jerry Pinkney and Rachel Isadora; from Ireland PJ Lynch; French artist Philippe Dumas, Chilean illustrator Claudio Munoz; from Germany Henriette Sauvant; Indian artists Amrit and Rabindra K. D Kaur Singh; from Japan Satoshi Kitamura; Zimbabwe-born Ken Wilson Max; from China a brilliant new young artist Yang Twesi-yu. Each has illustrated a different right with an outstanding double page spread making a powerful and moving book that is both an important souvenir and a stunning picture book to be treasured.

From the Publisher:

Publisher's note and press reviews
"Whoever we are, wherever we live, these are the rights of all children under the sun and the moon and the stars." (extract)

It has been a joy to work on this beautiful book. From the challenge of interpreting the Convention (a complex legal document) for picture book age children, to choosing and commissioning an international cast of illustrators, Random House worked very closely with UNICEF at every stage. Our shared vision was to create a visually stunning, powerful work that would not only inform, but also entertain, amuse and provoke discussion. The result, we feel, is an exceptional picture book - one for which some of the world's most renowned children's artists have given their very best: a book for every child.

The press has been equally enthusiastic

...for home

'It is religious in the freest and most generous sense of the word... And the combination of words and pictures is as moving as it could be... every household should have one.' Observer, December 2000

'This is a beautiful and thought-provoking book.' Mail on Sunday, December 2000

'This deserves to be a treasured gift book for the stylish beauty of its production as well as its content.' The Guardian, October 2000

...and for school

'This is a moving work, a family book or for sharing with friends, and an invaluable resource for teachers, especially those promoting the theme of citizenship.' Times Educational Supplement, October 2000

'The pictures are beautifully matched to the words...Citizenship, though non-statutory, is now part of the school curriculum at Key Stages One and Two.... 'For Every Child' is the perfect tool for teaching young children about their rights... every school library should have one.' Child Education, October 2000

Book Description:

Of all the books published to celebrate the Millennium this must surely be one of the most important. We reiterate the fundamental rights that should belong to all children of the world - as set down in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Retold in a simple, evocative text that can be understood by every child - each right is interpreted in a stunning double page spread by some of the world's most acclaimed children's artists.
