About Know Your Rights:

“This book is a guide for every young person who believes in a better world for all”—Malala Yousafzai

Adults are aware of their universal human rights of freedom and equality, but children often are ignorant of the rights they possess before reaching the age of majority. Enter Know Your Rights, written in partnership with Amnesty International, Angelina Jolie, and Geraldine Van Bueren.

Know Your Rights details the rights promised in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, starting with the history of child rights, and providing a clear description of the types of child rights, the young activists from around the world who fought to defend them, and how readers can stand up for their own rights.

“This is the perfect book for young people who care about the world and want to make a difference”—Greta Thunberg
