Publisher Review

Endorsed by Amnesty International, these snazzily illustrated stories celebrate children's rights and the kids who've fought for them. Because no one is too young to change the world. * i * This is an excellent book that can be used simply to explore children's rights and discover inspiring role models or it could be a starting point for further investigation both within and outside the curriculum. * Barbara Band, Armadillo * Children who Changed the World serves as a detailed graphic history of the children's rights movement and the role that children have played as activists in agitating for a greater awareness of their needs and care. This is a great book for extending curricular concerns outside the classroom. * The Irish Times *
