Rights and Equality

illustrated by Hanane Kai

“All people have equal value, and this means that all of us have equal rights.” Using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a starting point for discussion, Rights and Equality introduces children to the concepts of fairness, human rights, and equality.

Explained in a straightforward and accessible way, this picture book covers what it means to have rights and how to treat people fairly. Also included is information about why fighting for equality is important and ways that people can fight for change. “Every single person can do things to make sure that those around them are treated with equality and respect.”

A glossary and additional resources can be found at the back of the book.
