Small places close to home : a children's declaration of rights / written by Deborah Hopkinson ; illustrated by Kate Gardiner.

Hopkinson, Deborah, (author.). Gardiner, Kate, (illustrator.).

Summary:

In the wake of two devastating world wars, Eleanor Roosevelt, former first lady and U.S. delegate to the newly formed United Nations, drafted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Signed on December 10, 1948, the declaration marked the first time that countries agreed on a comprehensive statement of inalienable human rights. Created in honor of the seventy-fifth anniversary of that historic agreement, this moving adaptation for children, reminds us that universal rights begin in small places, close to home. Back matter includes brief biography of Eleanor Roosevelt.
