Description


A HEARTFELT AND LYRICAL PICTURE BOOK EXPLORING THE UNIVERSAL RIGHTS OF EVERY CHILD

PUBLISHED TO CELEBRATE THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD

INTERNATIONAL LOOK AT CHILDREN'S RIGHTS, EXPLORING GLOBAL ISSUES FACED BY CHILDREN, ENCOURAGING COMPASSION AND EMPATHY

When you were born, a song began...

So begins this lyrical and unique nonfiction picture book by award-winning children's author Nicola Davies. With tenderness and heart, Nicola introduces young readers to the universal rights that every child is entitled to under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.


Using the metaphor of song, the book opens with the arrival of a newborn and its unique "song," then pans out to explore all the essential things that every song needs to thrive--love, protection, a home, a name, the chance to explore and learn. In the latter half of the book, the issues of child labor, exploitation and war are sensitively introduced to emphasize that we all must play our part in championing children's rights and offering support to those who need it most.


With deeply moving watercolor illustrations by award-winning artist Marc Martin, this is a book that encourages children and adults alike to speak up for young people all around the world, and to treat one another with compassion and kindness.
