We Are All Born Free

is a wonderful new book that has just been published...
My copy arrived today, and I simply can't tell you
how meaningful the text is, 
how glorious the illustrations are...and,
with Peter Sis's art on the cover (click here),
it's an absolute must-have.

More on 
"We Are All Born Free"...
