Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—In this inspiring and motivating book, Zeiler challenges teens to make a difference by contributing to charitable causes. Her enthusiastic, personal appeal offers advice on selecting a charity and deciding whether to donate money, useful items, or time. No matter how grand or small the offering, the author stresses the intrinsic and tangible rewards of giving. Sidebars present tips on getting started, checklists for fundraising, positive quotes from teen volunteers, and blurbs on historical nonprofit successes like the March of Dimes. A helpful and lengthy annotated directory of well-established charities is arranged by category ("People," "Animals," and "The Environment") and ranges from Adopt-a-Minefield to the Wilderness Society. Each entry explains the organization's mission, describes how donations are used and monies spent, presents pertinent facts, and provides contact information. This book meshes well with the step-by-step guidelines in Barbara Lewis's The Kid's Guide to Service Projects (Free Spirit, 2004) and the testimonials of Prudential Award teen volunteers in Susan K. Perry's Catch the Spirit (Watts, 2000). The increasing school emphasis on community service and global awareness makes Zeiler's title a valuable, consciousness-raising resource.—Gerry Larson, Durham School of the Arts, NC

From the Publisher

Everyone can make a difference. A Kid's Guide to Giving originated when author Freddi Zeiler decided to donate the money from her piggy bank. There were so many charitable organizations to choose from that she didn't know where to begin--so she set out to research them all. The charitable organizations are divided into 3 categories: People, Animals, and Environment. The book comes with a gift envelope--to get kids started on the road to giving.

This book lists 101 charities relevant to kids and was written by a teenager. The book explains how kids can really make a difference. This is a great gift for kids for the holidays - something to inspire them to action and to make a change in the world around them. Channel that energy and concern for others into something good for people, animals, and the environment.

This is a wonderful book to teach children the rewards in giving not only monetarily but also of your time and talent. It is a great gift (it even has a place in the front of the book to add a special message and to put some money to start the child's charitable fund). The fact that it is written by a young person to other young people makes it a more direct approach for kids. I highly recommend this book.

Freddi Zeiler has put together a truly inspiring, powerful book. People like Freddi Zeiler are a credit to the human race. I think every household should have a copy, and in fact, I think it's selfish not to. Teaching children about giving to those less fortunate is not only a great idea, it's a necessary one. Lets raise the next generation (the people who will run our country) to be a compassionate one, and lets start with this book. Congratulations to the author for moving us in the right direction.

" A Kid's Guide to Giving" is a great resource to encourage a child to give back. It discusses the value of giving, how to give (not just donating money), and descriptions of many nonprofit organizations young people can relate to. The page layout and use of quotes from other young philanthropists makes it ideal for kids.
