Kids Who Are Changing the World [pb]
Written by Anne Jankeliowitch with photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
The inspiring stories of 45 young heroes who have made an impact on our planet.
Forty-five young people from around the world (including 12 from the U.S. and four from Canada) are doing something every day to make the world a better place. They discovered issues that concerned them and did something about it. With skills ranging from singing, drawing, and painting to fund-raising, public demonstrations, and events, they have fought climate change and pollution, and worked to protect animals and their natural habitats. This inspiring book also includes reference materials and suggestions on how readers can get involved. 144 pages
"The young activists appear in photographs with descriptions of their work, motivations, challenges, and successes. Allowing the children and their efforts to speak for themselves, the book suggests that curiosity, creativity, and mindfulness are key ingredients in making an impact." -Publishers Weekly (Ages 9-12)
"The book acknowledges that some stories have multiple sides... and recognizes that sometimes success can require multiple attempts, resulting in an optimistic but well-rounded tone." -School Library Journal (Grades 3-6)
