About the Book

A joyful, inspiring picture book that introduces readers to eleven young people from around the world who didn’t wait until they were grown to speak up about things that matter to them and change the world for the better, from an award-winning author and New York Times best-selling illustrator.

From climate activist Greta Thunberg to anti-bullying advocate Jaylen Arnold to peace activist Bana Alabed and more, these short profiles of young people and their causes will inspire readers to think about what matters most to them. An author's note, Actions to Make a Difference, and additional resources are also included, providing a roadmap for any kid who wants to make change and help others too.

Critical Praise

"Readers will be inspired by the blend of familiar kid activists such as Jazz Jennings, Greta Thunberg, and Malala Yousafzai with lesser-known young people like scientist Angela Zhang and community worker Jonas Corona....Jackson’s dreamy, doe-eyed illustrations embody the optimism and hope of each profiled youngster....inspirational." —Kirkus   "This upbeat compilation introduces young activists ranging from Kid President and Greta Thunberg to Jazz Jennings and Malala....These minibiographies pack in a surprising amount of information and work equally well as places to start research and as short, satisfying read-alouds." —Booklist    "Warmly illustrated....This is a wonderful collection to show young people that they can make a change, no matter how big the issue. The role models introduced here will inspire kids for years to come."—School Library Journal
