The most gorgeous hard back picture book for children about human rights.
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 of We Are All Born Free 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 Pyjamas, 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 organisation.
Each page is beautifully illustrated, and completely unique from the other pages, as every one is illustrated by a different artist. Every picture has much to explore and many quirky things to discover in the detail. It’s great to be able to flip to the back of the book and find pictures of each illustrator.
The words are brief, simple, yet enough. Each page is rich in the conversations that can be drawn from them. At the back of the book is included a simplified version of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a clever way to imbue the importance of this beautiful children’s picture book.
This would make a lovely newborn baby gift, something to keep and hand down through the family. Also a thoughtful conversation starter for primary school age children.
