Children have lots of ideas for changing the world — and here are thirty-one fun and simple ways to get started.
Small actions multiplied by lots of people equals big change! That’s the driving belief behind the social change movement We Are What We Do — and it infuses this lively, motivating book packed with action steps for younger readers. Incorporating the suggestions of thousands of children, tips range from stirring (stand up for something) to silly (walk your dad); from earth-friendly (don’t charge your phone overnight) to eye-opening (where is that Waldo?); from social (teach your granny to text) to downright surprising (speak soccer!). These thirty-one creative, original ideas are contributed by kids for kids — and each is guaranteed to have a clear and positive impact. Of course, the book would not be complete without a final question to the reader: what’s the one thing you would do to change the world?
We Are What We Do is a global movement aimed at inspiring people to use small, everyday actions to help change the world. Founded in London in 2004, the group gathered fifty simple ideas for improving the environment, our health, and our communities to create the international bestseller CHANGE THE WORLD FOR A FIVER, published in the United States as CHANGE THE WORLD FOR TEN BUCKS.
