  • This is one of the most energizing books I have read in awhile. Why? It provides thirty examples of young people from sixteen countries, I mean really young, one starting at age five, who have had a very positive impact on their country and in many cases the world, through their efforts.

    There are multiple reasons why this book is impressive in its message and how it is structured. First the message. These stories are real, and every one of them involved kids identifying something that they felt was wrong and then doing something successful about it. Not one of the examples was easy. This was not kids going to their parents and their parents taking over. In many cases their parents were an obstacle. It was kids doing something that many said could not be done.

    Now the structure. It is organized by the nature of the projects described in each chapter. The five chapters are Kids Saving the Environment, Kids Standing Up for Themselves, Kids Helping Others, Kids Overcoming Challenges, Kids Using Talents and Creativity. The stories are short and very easy to read, with pictures and graphics that help the story move ahead. There are Fast Fact boxes that provide information about the country where the action is occurring, or the kid taking action, or the success of the initiative. There are also Get Inspired postcard images in most chapters that provide information about how the reader can get involved in efforts that promote the particular initiative that has been described in the chapter.

    The Bibliography at the end of the book provides additional information about articles, books and other resources related to each chapter. Finally, the publisher Free Spirit needs a shout out. They have published other books about kids doing amazing things including Real Kids, Real Stories, Real Character Real Kids, Real Stories, Real Character: Choices That Matter Around the World

    Bottom Line - this is an inspiring and at the same time very informative book for anybody interested in identifying ways to improve our world and the resources that support that goal.

  • Excellent book to take children beyond their own "normal" and learn about other kids who didn't just have a good idea, but acted upon it to make an impact larger than they ever imagined. We include this riveting book in every gift for my children's classmates (ages 8-10). I need to buy this in bulk! Thank you, Mr. Sundem, for writing a substantial children's book that doesn't insult their intelligence with superficial nonsense, but wakes children up to the infinite potential each one has!

  • Garth Sundem's book is a truly inspiring collection of stories about amazing children and teens from around the world who have accomplished incredible things. Middle schoolers and older can read it themselves, but for younger children I'd suggest reading each story yourself first to make sure it is right for your child. While all of the stories are amazing, some are heartbreaking. The resources listed st the end of each chapter are a great addition to the book and will help your child find ways to help.

  • My son has LOVED this book and tells me about the stories he reads in it. The stories are amazing and some heart breaking. I dont know how one cannot want to be a better person after reading the stories of heroism and courage from these young people!

  • I loved reading this book. As amazed I am about all of these kids. I totally recommend you to read it!

  • 4th grade did a volunteer book study on this and my daughter really enjoyed ready this book and she came away learning a lot.

  • My 9 year old loves this book.

  • The boys in the book club were very inspired after reading this book. They expressed thoughts of creativity and have been asking for help in planning for their future.
