Kids all around the world are doing something every day to change the world. Here are the stories of 45 of them.

Whether it's in United States or Canada, Russia or Australia, China or Argentina, there are young people working hard to make the world a better place. They are schoolgirls trying to save the last bogs and wild pods in Hungary. Schoolboys trying to preserve marine biology in Madagascar or plant trees to reverse the effects of climate change. The 45 young heroes featured in this book have discovered issues that concerned them and they they did something about it.

With skills ranging from singing, drawing, and painting to fund-raising, public demonstrations, and events, these are the stories of individuals who have fought climate change and pollution, and worked to protect animals and their natural habitats. While the stories alone are compelling, they are also accompanied by stunning and dynamic photographs from Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

This inspiring and powerful book includes reference materials and suggestions on how you can get involved and become an environmental hero, too

Praise for Kids Who Are Changing the World

"This is a very inspiring non-fiction book... it shares stories about young people who are doing incredible things to make the environment a better place." - San Francisco Book Review

"It's impressive to see the variety of kids that author Anne Jankeliowitch features: children -- some still in grade school, some in non-traditional learning environments -- who saw a need and acted upon it, proving there is no age or ability limit to make a difference... and when you add in photography by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, you've got a hopeful, optimistic winner to read." -- Bookworm Sez
