Product description

Review

[Be a Changemaker] is a book that forces readers to not only think realistically but also to think big.-- "Booklist"

From discovering potential causes and passions to creating business plans, soliciting donations, and being aware of legal and financial pitfalls, Thompson offers thorough, encouraging advice for the next generation of activists.-- "Publishers Weekly"

Socially aware teens are not content to sit idly by and watch the world fail to solve problems. They want to be out there helping and reshaping the world. Savvy librarians will match this book with those teens and get them jumpstarted on their path.-- "VOYA"

Teens looking to make a difference will find inspiration as well as real-world strategies for realizing their dreams of being the change they want to see in the world.-- "Kirkus Reviews"

There's no time when we most want to change the world than in our youth years. Laurie Ann Thompson speaks clearly to young people who want to make a difference in their surroundings, doing their part to make the world a better place. Thompson explains that no matter how small a good idea may seem, it may be just a tiny seed for something that will grow and affect other people's lives in a positive way.--Ana Calabresi, Librarian

This book is packed with practical advice and inspiration for anyone who has a yearning to build a better world.--David Bornstein, author of How to Change the World and columnist for the New York Times

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea in cheap, low quality book
Reviewed in the United States on 28 February 2019
It’s low budget made book with nothing visual that would keep the kid interested.
Small font on grayish paper with absolutely no illustrations and the writing style of a business meeting agenda..
With all the stories in the book it could have been done beautifully if pictures of the issues or kids involved in their actions in their (often) impoverished country would be included. Different sized font for new story introduction etc..
Good idea, badly done.
