All over the world children are leading their lives in completely different ways. Faced with many challenges, they all have one thing in common - a passion for life. Dorling Kindersley and UNICEF have combined forces to provide an insight into the lives and experiences of 14 children from around the world. Guided by the promises of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the book has been divided into universal themes covering food, water, shelter, education, family and health. A donation goes to UNICEF for every copy of "A Life Like Mine" sold.
