My Little Book of Big Freedoms - Review and Giveaway

When this small yet incredibly important book arrived in the post this week, I was extremely excited and I could not wait to share it with the Mini Reviewers.



My Little Book of Big Freedoms portrays the 16 different freedoms of The Human Rights Act in a series of enchanting and very beautiful pictures. Each picture is accompanied by simplified text taken from the act itself. The book has been illustrated by awarding winning writer and illustrator and former Children's Laureate, Chris Riddell. It has been published by Buster Books in partnership with Amnesty International UK, the world's largest human rights organisation.




As a former lawyer, I am impressed at how effortlessly this little book conveys the importance of The Human Rights Act and explains how the special rules look after all of us, keeping us safe and free. Although aimed at children, this is a book to inspire generations and I cannot see how anyone, young or old, could fail to be moved by such poignant illustrations.

This special little book is undoubtedly my favourite release of the year so far and I can see it being read in homes and classrooms up and down the country.


My Little Book of Big Freedoms is available from 22nd June 2017, RRP £9.99. If you would like to win your own copy please enter the giveaway below:

  13. This sounds like a wonderful book. It is so important to know and appreciate our freedoms. Interestingly, I don't even know whether the Netherlands, where I live, has a specific human rights bill or it's all in the constitution. #readwithme
