About the Author:

Bryon Cahill has been writing for young people for over a decade. As editor of Weekly Reader's READ magazine, Bryon wrote short fiction, nonfiction, and reader's theater plays, created award-winning literary web sites, and spearheaded an experimental theater adaptation of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing live on Facebook. In 2012, Bryon launched Literary Wonderland (www.literarywonderland.com). An avid reader, he also enjoys running and playing tennis at home in Morristown, New Jersey.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-As the world descended into global war in 1941, Franklin D. Roosevelt declared four universal human rights worthy of support and defense. Each book defines a freedom, places it into the context of American history, and then gives international examples of how it has been adopted or restricted. Cahill uses examples to illustrate trends and patterns, all too many of which reveal that the four freedoms are far from universal and the struggle to secure them continues. Brief sidebars, "Did You Know?" fact boxes, and large photos, many of children, supplement the texts. It is disappointing that only one of the iconic Norman Rockwell paintings inspired by the four freedoms, Freedom from Want, is included in the set. Although these books don't provide extensive background or geopolitical analysis, they do introduce readers to the importance of basic human rights, making them first purchases.α(c) Copyright 2013.
