Description - Every Human Has Rights by The Elders

In 1948, Eleanor Roosevelt let a committee that set down for the first time the rights that every human in every country should be entitled to simply by virtue of their humanity. The book has been translated into 335 languages, and it is high time that children had a beautiful, evocative version to encourage them to see themselves as people with rights, too. More recent scandals at Guantanamo Bay and the protests surrounding the Olympics have raised awareness of human rights abuses once more.The 30 rights set down in 1948 by the United Nations are incredibly powerful. According to the U.N., every human - just by virtue of being human - is entitled to freedom, a fair government, a decent standard of living, work, play, and education, freedom to come and go as we please and to associate with anyone we please, and the right to express ourselves freely. "Every Human Has Rights" offers kids an accessibly written list of these rights, commentary - much of it deeply emotional - by other kids, and richly evocative photography illustrating each right. At the end of this deceptively simple book, kids will know - and feel - that regardless of individual differences and circumstances, each person is valuable and worthy of respect.
