kidsKids who are changing the world is about kids (I think the oldest is 15) who are from around the world who found problems with their local communities and figured out what they should do to try and fix them.  From collecting used oils for bio-diesel to recycling programs and building wells in places that need water – these kids had great ideas to help others and were able to act on them and make a difference.  Each chapter focuses on one kid and what he/she did to help.  At the end of the chapter is a summary – starting with the objective – what they wanted to do, what their goal was.  Then it breaks down how they accomplished this objective – what action they took, how they have changed the world, what role their parents played, what makes them the happiest about what they have done, what their biggest mistake was in reaching their goal and what their advice is.

If you think you have an idea that can help change the world, you’ll want to check out this book to see what these other kids did and also read what their mistakes and advice are to help you learn how to approach them.  Together we can change the world, if everyone just makes 1 small step, think about what we all could do together!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
