This children’s book from Amnesty International contains 17 quotations about many different aspects of freedom, from the freedom to have an education to that not to be hurt or tortured, the freedom to have a home and the freedom to be yourself. All the chosen quotations are in simple words that can be understood by young children. Authors of the quotations include human rights heroes such as Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, Anne Frank, Chief Standing Bear, Malala Yousafzai and Aung San Suu Kyi, with beautiful illustrations from international artists including Oliver Jeffers and Chris Riddell.
Amnesty has developed a free teachers’ pack to accompany this book, enabling teachers to explore human rights and the idea of freedom with pupils at Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11).
