Every Child A Song

by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Marc Martin - £6.99  Hodder & Stoughton (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781526361431 | ISBN 10: 1526361434

When you were born, a song began...
 
So begins this lyrical and unique non-fiction picture book by award-winning children’s author Nicola Davies. With tenderness and heart, Nicola introduces young readers to the universal rights that every child is entitled to under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
 
Using the metaphor of song, the book opens with the arrival of a newborn and its unique ‘song’, then pans out to explore all the essential things that every song needs to thrive – love, protection, a home, a name, the chance to explore and learn. In the latter half of the book, the issues of child labour, exploitation and war are sensitively introduced to emphasise that we all must play our part in championing children’s rights and offering support to those who need it most.
 
With deeply moving watercolour illustrations by award-winning artist Marc Martin, this is a book that encourages children and adults alike to speak up for young people all around the world, and to treat one another with compassion and kindness.
 
Recommended for readers aged approx 5-8.
