What a great resource, not just for kids but also for adults as well. The book is thoughtfully organized and illustrated. Every chapter gives several real world examples, and then suggestions for ways the reader might come up with their own ideas. There is a little workbook at the end of each chapter that is a great starting point for action.
The book address many complicated and intense real world problems such as racism, sexism, violence, so I strongly suggest that an adult is available to help a child navigate some complex vocabulary and ideas. That said, it is written in a manner that is very approachable and understandable by a young adult or teenager.
Overall, I love the hopefulness and positive approach. Yes, there are many things in the world that might seem terrible or unjust, but you are not helpless, you can say something or do something, you can help to bring about change. I think this is a super powerful message and genuinely moving. I bought about a dozen copies and am planning to give them to many of the important children in my life.
