Let's explore our rights - human rights book for children

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Monday, May 22, 2023

 

“Let’s Explore Our Rights” teaches young children about their human rights (things like having a safe home, being healthy, learning, and playing.) The book will support early years practitioners to spark first conversations about human rights with very young children.

 

The book was created in response to requests from early years practitioners for a resource to help them talk about human rights with children. The book aims to explain in a gentle, age-appropriate way what rights are and why they are important, and to support even very young children to understand their rights and to challenge adults in power when they feel their rights aren’t being respected.
