Inspired by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the book tells the reader, through the gentle voice of Kermit the Frog, about the rights of children everywhere. These include the right to food, clean water, and the right to grow up in a healthy and peaceful environment. Now, reprinted in an updated edition, the book also tells how the United Nations is working to protect those rights.
Powerful, moving, simple and forceful, the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights speaks to us all -- about our ideals, about hope, about the sort of world we want to create and live in. Bought to vivid life by illustrator Michel Streich, this edition of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights marries the forceful words of the Declaration with a series of striking yet simple illustrations, making us see afresh the power, hope and idealism contained in these words. The perfect gift for any thinking person.
