Working with children, teachers and parents UNICEF UK’s Education Team have developed a new resource for primary school children to learn about the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We asked children to help us design the Pocket Book of Children's Rights and they chose an illustrator to help bring children’s rights to life. Children also helped us make sure that the language we used was as child-friendly and accessible as possible.

The Pocket Book enables children to fully understand their rights and the rights of other children. It is a practical tool to engage children with the Convention and to encourage them to take an active interest in issues that affect them and children around the world.
