Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1989 the United Nations formally adopted fifty-four principles that make up the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. For this breathtaking picture book the fourteen declarations that are most relevant to children's everyday lives have been retold by Caroline Castle in a simple, evocative text, each one interpreted in a stunning double-page illustration by a different artist from around the world. These well-known contributors include two Americans, both major award-winners: Jerry Pinkney and Rachel Isadora.

UNICEF has declared that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child "stands alone as the single most comprehensive instrument of human rights law." However, not nearly enough people know of this important document's existence, and the new Millennium has presented the opportunity to draw attention to these rights.
