The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948. Compiled after the horrors of World War II, its purpose was to state and protect the rights of all people. This beautiful commemorative edition celebrates each declaration with an illustration by an internationally renowned artist or illustrator, including Jackie Morris, Satoshi Kitamura, Catherine Anholt and Laurence Anholt, Marie-Louise Gay, Jessica Souhami, Peter Sis, Mick Manning and Brita Granström, Hong Song-Dam, and many others. A testament to freedom and the human spirit, it is a thoughtful gift for children and adults alike. With a foreword by John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and Doctor Who’s David Tennant, We Are All Born Free is published in association with Amnesty International, and all royalties will be donated to the organization.

      This beautiful book puts the most important human rights to pictures and makes them easy to explain to children. It's gorgeously illustrated on double-pages. What a wonderful teaching tool!

      Comment on this review

      "A must read book." Bookwitch "Saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' certainly applies here - each of the carefully drawn illustrations conveys a really strong message and repays close attention." Parents in Touch "So amazingly compiled, the illustrators list reads like a "who's who" of all our favourite talented folk, and the lessons imparted here - not dumbed down, but imparted so effectively for a children's book, are more important now than ever." Read It Daddy "A beautifully diverse and vital addition to any bookshelf. The variety of illustrations is a delight, while the content is essential knowledge for children to learn." Booktrust
