Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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? Back matter includes an author's note and information about how to get involved.

Publishers Weekly Review

Presented by British community interest company We Are What We Do, this stylish handbook features 31 suggestions for changing the world, volunteered by kids. The actions vary from the practical ("Turn things off when you leave the room") to the civic ("Teach Your Granny to Text"-a crocheted list of gran-centric abbreviations includes IMD or "In my day...") and cross-cultural. Space is provided for readers to write in their own actions. Optimistic without being contrived, and visually exciting. Ages 8-12. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

We Are What We Do is a global movement aimed at inspiring people to use small, everyday action 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.
