A Life Like Mine, for ages 9-12, is a sensitive and uplifting look at children's rights and how these rights are being met around the world. Through encounters with diverse children we learn not only about the efforts the world is making to look after every child, but also about the optimism and excitement with which children the world over pursue a good life for themselves. You will meet many children in this book, each with a unique story to tell. A Life Like Mine is the third book in the bestselling collaboration between Dorling Kindersley and UNICEF, which began with Children Just Like Me in 1995. Harry Belafonte, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, has written the foreword to all three books.
