Reviewed with Children in Charge 1

'Mary John's commitment to involving young people in the conference proceedings is to be welcomed and applauded. A goldmine of empirical studies of policy and practice targeted at the improvement of children's lives by increasing their rights entitlements... An extensive range of issues embracing education, health, divorce, play, new technology, physical and sexual abuse and even reproductive technology are discussed thoughtfully and analysed intelligently for their implications for children's rights. John has also avoided the trap of a narrow eurocentrism... The development of social policy in Uruguay, the children's parliament in Slovenia, the implementation of the UN Convention in Kenya and children's right to play in Peru offer more global arenas for the discussion of rights.

- British Journal of Educational Psychology

'These are two remarkable volumes which deserve wide readership. The experience of childhood is dealt with honestly and with deep integrity and respect and dignity. The second volume 'The Child's Right to Resources' provides a conceptual framework for the whole area of children's welfare and rights... I cannot commend these two volumes highly enough for the quality of insights, the willingness to provoke, the challenge to us to think of children internationally and above all the clear commitment to allowing the authentic voices of children to be heard.'
