The Song of Freedom

What are human rights and why are they important?

This book tells the story of a family of crabs who lose their homes, get seperated and have to find their way to one another again. It has two major themes: that a community is stronger when they stand together, and that there are certain rights that a person is always entitled to. Storytelling with crabs also promotes children’s awareness of the environments and living things around them.

The story is accompanied by full page illustrations to make the reading experience more engaging. It is also followed by some basic information around human rights and some discussion questions – these make the book a fantastic classroom resource as well as exciting reading material for individual students.
