My Little Book of Big Freedoms

Politically, our world is in a bit of a mess at the moment and it can be hard to explain things to our young folk. And yet, the latest election in the UK in particular has shown us the importance of educating our youth in politics, in empathy, in tolerance and equality. Our children are the ones who are going to fix it all. Arming them now is a Very Good Plan. And that is where books like this come in.

This new edition of My Little Book of Freedoms by Chris Riddell is one hell of a parting gift from our Children’s Laureate. It explains Human Rights in an immensely child-friendly way without over-simplifying them and taking away their value. Each double page spread contains a freedom and an illustration to represent it. It’s an incredible springboard for discussion and is accompanied by downloadable resources and activities for children.

It is stunning. It is important. It should be in every school. This review copy is headed for my local primary school where I’m hoping it will find the next generation’s Human Rights activist.

You can get your copy here.
