Recommended summer reads from Amnesty International


Amnesty International UK has compiled a list of recommended books for young readers to enjoy this summer, and we’re delighted to see two Nosy Crow titles included: There’s a Bear on My Chair, by Ross Collins, and How To Look After Your Dinosaur, by Jason Cockroft.

Amnesty’s top picks explore and celebrate human rights – including themes of family life, justice, racism and the refugee crisis – and have been selected for three age ranges: younger readers (3-7 years); junior readers (8-12 years); and teens (13-16 years).

In their citation for the book, Amnesty call There’s a Bear on My Chair (previously the recipient of the inaugural Amnesty CILIP Greenaway Honour) “a witty portrayal of activism and peaceful protest”. Here’s a look inside the book:
