ACHUKA Book of the Day Wed 20 Nov 2019
An introduction 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.
