    A great idea by Amnesty International: a book containing the 16 basic rights a person has in the UK, under the Human Rights Act, illustrated and explained for children by the current Children's Laureate Chris Riddell. ... But I have to say, "Family" We have the right to live with our family and live our lives in the way we choose. The government shouldn't spy on us. seems a bit funny considering that a British person says this - look at London and all the spying there, to name just one example.

However, this point is the most important one to me right now, considering the refugee crisis and all the silly limitations politicians come up with in order to prevent people from coming to Europe! A nice little booklet that I mainly bought to support Amnesty International.

    What a brilliant way to introduce something as important as the Human Rights Act to small children. Chris Riddells illustrations are as always bright and colourful with meaning ingrained in every image. Will be going to a few children in my family for Christmas.

    Die altbekannte Gewissensfrage bei manchen Dingen - nur weil es ein dünnes kleines Buch ist, mehr Bilder als Text beinhaltet und keinen höherwertigen literarischen Wert in den Augen vieler Menschen (insbesondere Literaturkritiker) hat - darf es dann eine hohe Bewertung bekommen?

Hat sich der Autor/Zeichner dies verdient und erzeugt es nicht gewisse Annahmen für den geneigten und interessierten Leser? Vielleicht, aber was soll's! :) Dieses kleine Büchlein wurde gratis im London Southbank Centre verteilt, weil Chris Riddell im Rahmen einer Veranstaltungen Kinder sowie Erwachsene eingeladen hat. Auf der Bühne waren er und viele seiner FreundInnen um das Publikum gekonnt zu unterhalten. Dabei wurde klar, dass ihm das Thema "Freiheit" in vielen erdenklichen Formen wichtig ist und er nicht nur das Cover von "Here I stand" einfach gestaltet hat, sondern emotionell ganz stark hinter diesem Thema steht. Aus diesem Grund gab es diesen Stand und ich habe mir recht rasch eines dieser kleinen Büchlein gesichert und es ist grafisch sowie inhaltlich mehr als perfekt aufgebaut. Das Ziel - welches in der Einleitung von Chris erläutert wird - ist klar, den Menschen klar machen, auf recht einfache Art und Weise, was "Freiheit" bedeutet. Anhand kleiner Bilder, mit den Worten "Sicherheit, Freiheit, Schutz, Gedanken, Familie, Recht, u.v.m." betitelt, hat Chris auf sehr plastische Art visualisiert wie wichtig diese Begrifflichkeiten sind und wofür sie stehen. Dies ist eines jener Bücher, welches in Schulen aufliegen darf, an Veranstaltungen für Kinder ... aber auch für viele Erwachsene! Warum? Weil es um Grundrechte, um Menschenrechte geht und wenn dies jedem Menschen auf diesem Planeten klar ist, dann hat die Zivilgesellschaft einfach eine bessere Basis um ein besseres Leben für alle überhaupt zu ermöglichen. Hat dieses Buch die Berechtigung damit 5 Sterne zu bekommen? Ja, auf jeden Fall. Weil es auch herausfordernder ist, Themen mit wenigen Worten oder in diesem Fall mit jeweils einem Bild auszudrücken! :) Prädikat: Nachdenkenswert sowieso, nachverfolgenswert noch mehr und dazu lesenswert! :)

    Read out to me by my friend Cath on Fri 29th and then bought and signed by Chris Riddell on Sat 30th at YALC. A brilliant way to introduce the Human Rights Act to children. The illustrations are stunning and we butch had a little tear.

    A great book to teach/spark-conversations-with children about human rights. Small but powerful! Peaceful illustrations by Chris Riddell. The text is a simplified version of the Human Rights Act by Amnesty UK.

    Fabulous little book setting out the 16 fundamental freedoms covered by the UK Human Rights Act and illustrating them absolutely perfectly. What else would you expect from Children's Laureate Chris Riddell?

    My fiance had taken me out the other day while we were waiting for a dress store to open and since it was one of a few places that were already opened we dropped into one of two local bookstores just to look around. While checking out the children section I came across this book and was intrigued by the title as well as the beautiful cover of the pegasus.

While checking out the children section I came across this book and was intrigued by the title as well as the beautiful cover of the pegasus. The book itself is one that is definitely a fast read and one that is mostly easy to understand while there are actually two parts of the book, one at the beginning and one at the end, in which the reader is given more information about the book. These two sections mostly explain as to the reason why this book was written and the importance as well as some history about the Human Rights Act. These two sections alone will be the only place that may end up causing some problems for very young readers and should only be reserved for adult readers or those who are old enough as well as want to learn more about what they are reading. Otherwise the book is broken up into the sixteen major freedoms that all humans are supposed to be entitled to. As a result each two pages cover a certain freedom and what it means while having people from all walks of life portrayed as well as an animal that is usually with them. There are no unusually big and hard to pronounce word nor any hidden content so the information is presented in an easy-to-understand format that cannot be mistaken. Each freedom also portrays humans, usually just one, from all walks of life and with an animal companion. These illustrations aren't too brightly colored nor distracting from the actual message of the page while providing a human experience for the reader who cannot relate to these characters. Unfortunately at the same time this is where I wish there had been some more information about why these particular animals may have been chosen to portray the freedom for although some are easy to guess at there are others that aren't quite so easy to guess at. And although this book does a great job and would make for a wonderful addition to any history classroom or one that studies politics it isn't one that I would suggest for young children. Although parents and other adults may want their children to learn these tenets early on it is also wise to remember that it will also be hard to explain at the same time to children who don't quite understand the concepts within the book that although we believe these freedoms should be possessed by all there are those within this world who ignore these and will do as they think best thus violating the same said freedoms. So when sharing this with a child I would suggest some parental discretion be advised....

    Chris Riddell illustrates 16 of the fundamental freedoms outlined in the Human Rights Act and explains them in easy to understand text. A great way to introduce the Human Rights Act. Amnesty International did a good job of breaking down the statements into easily understood language with Riddell's illustrations that further explain the meaning. I appreciate that there are further links in the back of the book. A good resource for classes or families talking about social justice and human rights.

    A children's guide to the rights that all people the world over have. Based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I love the pictures of the animals protecting the children and their rights. It's a good stepping stone to talking about human rights with children.

    "Little" is right - very small format. "Big" is right - human rights is an important concept, and this book would serve as an introduction or companion within a unit. Soft, light illustrations with thin lines, predominance of yellow.

    Human rights and freedoms are important for people of all ages to understand. This little book helps introduce those ideas to children and open the dialogue between child and caregiver about what each of these freedoms really means.

    Chris Riddell's illustrations are beautiful and help kids grasp the concept or think deeper about the concept. Well done.
