Anywhere and everywhere throughout the world...these are the rights of every child.All of the articles from the UN Convention are cited in full, along with brief biographies and photographs of the artists who illustrated the fourteen featured principles.This exciting and meaningful book hopes to explain to children their fundamental human rights in a way they can understand and at the same time remind the adult world of its responsibilities.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.Contributing Artists: John Burningham, Babette Cole, Philippe Dumas, Shirley Hughes, Rachel Isadora, Satoshi Kitamura, P. J. Lynch, Claudio Munoz, Jerry Pinkney, Henriette Sauvant, Amrit & Rabindra K. D. Kaur Singh, Peter Weevers, Ken Wilson-Max, Yang Tswei-yu
