Editorial Reviews


“A powerfully written, heartbreaking account of making sure that all children have the opportunity to "dream big dreams and have a fighting chance to realize those dreams.” ―Kirkus Review

“Stern's ability to bridge diverse cultures, language barriers, and economic circumstances through simple commonalities--she relates to women in Africa as a mother and gains insight into the experience of displaced persons from her Jewish heritage--is the greatest of many lessons she offers to those wanting to help children in crisis.” ―Publisher's Weekly

“Caryl Stern offers a poignant and personal account from the front lines of her work to protect the most vulnerable children in the world today. Through her eyes, we are powerfully re-awakened to the common hopes and aspirations that all parents share for their children – and to the injustice that denies hope to far too many of the world's most marginalized families. She does so with empathy, humility, and a sense of profound optimism that leaves the reader believing – like her – in the equity platform of UNICEF and the audacious goal of ZERO hunger, poverty and disease.” ―Timothy P. Shriver, PhD; Chairman and CEO, Special Olympics Inc.

“Caryl Stern is an inspiration for anyone contemplating a life of service. Throughout her travels, whether to war zones, the sites of humanitarian or natural disasters, or to distant places where UNICEF has been working away for the long haul, she has always taken the time to talk to children, families and communities, to understand their lives and the issues the face, and their hopes and dreams. I Believe in ZERO: Learning From The World's Children should be mandatory reading for anyone interested in making sure that every child has the chance to grow, thrive and reach their potential – and indeed, in changing the world!” ―Lucy Liu, UNICEF Ambassador

“As global citizens, it's our responsibility to band together and create change for our world's children. As a mother of four, I'm always amazed at the work Caryl Stern and UNICEF do on a daily basis to make sure kids have the basic necessities like clean water, food to eat and medicine for preventable illnesses. This book is not only heartwarming but inspirational. My hope is that you will read it and join in UNICEF's ‘I believe in ZERO' campaign. Our children need us.” ―Heidi Klum

“UNICEF has helped save more children's lives than any other organization on the planet. Caryl Stern and all of the wonderful people at UNICEF are amongst the bravest warriors we have in this battle to save the world's most vulnerable children. They don't care about how dangerous or unstable a country might be that they need to enter, or what the gender, political affiliation, or religion is of a child. All Caryl and UNICEF care about is accessing children who need their help. I believe in ZERO and anyone who spends a few minutes with Caryl Stern will believe in ZERO too.” ―Vern Yip, UNICEF Ambassador

“Traveling with UNICEF changed my life, and like Caryl Stern, the lessons I've learned from the world's children have filled me with awe and wonder. In her new book, Caryl brings those lessons home for us all, with a mother's eye, and a humanitarian's heart.” ―Alyssa Milano, UNICEF Ambassador

“Caryl Stern is one of the world's great mothers. While travelling with Caryl on a UNICEF field visit, I saw firsthand the incredible love she has for ALL of the world's children. Her stories force us to realize that every child, not just our own, deserves the right to live a healthy, happy life.” ―Tyson Chandler

“Caryl understands how important children are. Through this book she shows her passion for protecting the world's most vulnerable children, helping us understand the need for all of us to work toward the day when Zero children die from preventable causes.” ―Pau Gasol, UNICEF Ambassador
