Amnesty UK loves books

Amnesty and CILIP, the library and information association, are working to develop children’s understanding of human rights through the outstanding  books shortlisted for the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals. All the books are also eligible for the Amnesty CILIP Honour, for illuminating, upholding or celebrating human rights. The Medals and Honour winners will be announced on 19th June.

We have created special Story Explorer resources to help adults, young people and children explore the human rights values at the heart of all the shortlisted books.
