Summary: Twelve children from around the world are profiled, each one having started an initiative to help the planet. Each two-page spread shows kids at work, with a brief paragraph describing the young person and their activity. Captions in the illustrations give additional information. The last few pages offer ten things kids can do to help save the planet; ten things they can do to make their voices heard; and a list of seven websites with additional information. 32 pages; grades 1-5.
Pros: Readers will be inspired by these kid activists who have already done amazing things to help make the world a better place. There’s a lot to see in each illustration, and the information is brief enough for the younger grades.
Cons: In the back matter, the author states that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change “found that the world is already 34 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than two hundred years ago.” Was a decimal point left out?
