The 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights will be this December 10th.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Children’s Edition is a book for young children with pictures by star illustrators.
Tonight on The Learning Curve I heard Jane Ray talking about its genesis. She said that the article on torture was very difficult to illustrate. What would you have tried to show, for young children?
Here’s what Jane Ray did.
It’s been a good week for me and children’s books – I also discovered Sadie the Airmail Pilot by my occasional reader Mr Kellie Strøm (Norman Geras’ Profile 266) And I dug out my favourite book in the entire world, an ABC called ‘A Beastly Collection‘ by Jonathon Coudrille. I owe that man (never met him) a hell of a lot, more than I can explain at this stage of the evening – you’d have to read it. You really must.
