No corner of the globe is left untouched in this collection of biographies about children and teens who have - and are - changing the world. From overcoming personal adversity to tackling some of the world's biggest problems, readers meet young people who have found their passion.
Readers will recognize some of these inspiring kids as peers or heroes (particularly in the sports realm). What I especially love is how the spotlight shines on (a) kids all over the world, and (b) the idea that kids have been making a difference in their worlds for centuries. These include Louis Braille, Ann Frank, Helen Keller, Joan of Arc, Amadeus Mozart, and Sacagawea among others.
Each life sketch is a two-page spread with a biography, illustrated image, and a quote from the featured child. Being able to start reading anywhere (maybe with someone they know) creates huge appeal among reluctant readers. The features are well done and can easily encourage more reading on the person or subject. Last but not least, each story is written at a level that can be easily understood by younger audiences not quite ready to read books at this level.
Short biographic profiles introduce readers to kids making a difference all over the world.
This anthology offers a 1-page story of children, teens, and young adults who are making a difference all around the world.
Read these biographies as a way to broaden reader awareness of global issues, challenges faced by children around the world, or as a way to encourage their interest in a subject or person. Then visit the library to find more books about those subjects.
