A classic picture book edition of My Little Book of Big Freedoms illustrated by award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell, published in partnership with Amnesty International. We all want a good life, to have fun, to be safe, happy, and fulfilled. For this to happen, we need to look after each other and stand up for the basic human rights that we often take for granted. This book features 16 different freedoms, each accompanied by beautiful illustrations. It shows why our human rights are so important–they help to keep us safe. Every day.
If you’re looking to talk about basic freedoms with children, this is probably a good book to do that… but it’s very abstract and isn’t one I’d turn to without a very specific purpose.
