In 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention of the Rights of the Child, a document detailing 54 principle rights for children worldwide. This book highlights fourteen of those rights in simple words and pictures, such as the right to not be hurt, the right to live and grow, and the right to speak and be heard. It also includes an introduction by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who asks readers to help make a difference.
