Winner: Special Award, English Association 4-11 Award

An arrestingly original way of informing children of their human rights, We Are All Born Free depicts each of the 30 Articles of Universal Declaration of Human Rights in wonderful illustrations by thirty best known illustrators. Each of the important statements is reinforced by the stunning artwork of the contributors who include John Burningham, Chris Riddell, Axel Scheffler, Polly Dunbar and Jane Ray. Both thought provoking and beautiful, this is an essential book. (All royalties go to Amnesty international.)

Reviews

One of my favourites of the season. -- Annie Everall Bookseller

Published in association with Amnesty International, this amazing collection of illustrations celebrates the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The perfect gift for both children and adults. Publishing News

Published 60 years after the original Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed after the Second World War. This brilliant book contains a simplified text for younger readers and stunning illustrations from some of the world's most renowned illustrators. With books about children's rights increasingly demanded by schools, this book is needed in every classroom, and its beautiful presentation will lead to it being desired by every household. Bookseller

The best books for giving are those we return to again and again. Such a book is We Are Born Free - a sumptuously illustrated exploration of the Declaration of Human Rights for young readers. -- Jake Hope Bookseller

A children's book about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? It's a bl**dy miracle! Families South East 4 stars.

Lovely book celebrating the universal declaration of human rights in a way that children will understand. www.bettybookmark.co.uk

A feast for the eyes and the mind providing plenty to ponder and discuss at home and school. Scotsman

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Pictures sounds like a really terrible idea doesn't it. Until you see the book We Are All Born Free. In this fine and important publication, the rights are put into language that everyone can understand and illustrated by some of the finest illustrators in the world. As one teacher saId to me I will be giving everyone this book for Christmas - why not follow her example. Carousel

The text is clearly valuable as a set of ideals for life (and rules for the playground); and the pictures are inventive rather than literal. They vary in tone - from comic to serious, childlike to sophisticated, fantastical to realistic - and use media ranging from collage to screen prints. Sunday Times

The UDHR is not the most obvious fodder for a picture book but once you've seen We Are All Born Free you'll wonder what took them so long... A copy in every classroom would be a good start, particularly as royalties go to Amnesty International, but ideally every child should start life with one of their own. Telegraph

If I could lay down the law for a minute, I would say this book should be obligatory in every young library. -- Laurence Anholt Child Education
