The Burnet Book Club!


The human rights charity Amnesty International recently put together a list of books to inspire activism (activism is where you campaign to make a change). In their words...

"At Amnesty, we believe that children’s books are a perfect way to explore human rights, no matter how old you are. The best storytellers bring complex ideas to life with deceptive simplicity. Through words and pictures they build children’s knowledge, empathy... They encourage young readers to think, to ask questions and to seek out the truth. To stand up for themselves and each other. These are some of the building blocks of human rights.

Here is their list of books to inspire young activists!

Have you read any of these books? If so, can you give us your review?

Which ones would you like to read and why?

Can you recommend any other books WHICH INVOLVE PROTEST OR ACTIVISM? For example, you might have read "No one is too small to make a difference" by Greta Thunberg.

PS: Want to know what it's like to write a book about protest and activism? One of our experts Kajal Odedra has written a really important book called "Activism for Everyone" and she is ready to take your questions. Go here to ask her something!
