Every Child A Song by Nicola Davies




When you were born a song began… So begins this lyrical and unique non-fiction picture book by award-winning children’s author Nicola Davies. With tenderness and a good deal of heart Nicola introduces young readers to the universal rights that every child is entitled to under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Using the metaphor of song the book opens with the arrival of a newborn and its unique ‘song’ then pans out to explore all the essential things that every song needs to thrive – love protection a home a name the chance to explore and learn. In the latter half of the book the issues of child labour exploitation and war are sensitively introduced to emphasise that we all must play our part in championing children’s rights and offering support to those who need it most. With beautiful and deeply moving watercolour illustrations by award-winning artist Marc Martin this is a book that encourages children and the adults in their lives to speak up for young people all around the world and to treat one another with compassion and kindness.
