This book was created for and with the participation of children to explain the Convention on
the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, why it was created and how it can help people with disabilities realize their rights. We hope you can use the book to help spread the word so that children with  disabilities have an equal chance at achieving their goals.
You may have a disability, or you may know someone who does. People with disabilities may have difficulty seeing, hearing, walking or remembering. But they also have dreams, hopes and ideas they want to share – as in the drawings and poems published here.
We encourage you to share this information with your parents, your teachers, your friends and anyone else you think would be interested.
