Containing more than a dozen accounts of children who have worked for everything from racial equality to world peace, this book demonstrates how youth have fought for what's right, then offers ideas about how to get involved.

Review

“Deserves shelf space in every classroom and library.” ―Starred, Publishers Weekly

Second, a handbook for young activists, with practical suggestions for planning, organizing, publicizing, and raising funds for social action projects.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“An invaluable book . . . Reads with intensity and should convince young readers that they can make a difference in the attitudes and policies of their world.” ―Boxed, Booklist

“A clear-headed, good-hearted guide to help young people empower themselves.” ―Gloria Steinem

By Harold McFarland HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 22, 2002
Format: Paperback
"It's Our World Too!" takes its title from an incident where a child was told that they could not sign a petition against the spread of nuclear weapons because he was too young. So he started his own petition for children because it is their world too. This book contains the inspiring and motivating true stories of children who are making a difference in their neighborhoods and the world. Each story is well told with pictures of the young people involved. The stories are organized into sections on Taking a Stand, Reaching Out to Others, Healing the Earth, and Creating a Safer Future. In a society where only the bad young people make the news, it is refreshing to have a book that shows there are those that are making a positive difference.
The second portion of the book is an instructional guide and handbook for anyone who wants to follow the path of the young people in the book. It is full of detailed suggestions on how to organize, plan, and carry out programs for social change.
A must read book for teenagers and adults these people and those like them are our hope for a bright future.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for young activists. It opens up with inspiring stories of children who made a difference in their communities and the world and closes with a detailed instructional guide that tells you how to become an activist yourself. Although this book is written for kids ages 9-12, everyone can get something out of it. The second part of the book, a handbook for young activists, can be very useful to adults and teens as well as the intended audience. There are detailed suggestions on how to organize, plan and get the word out about your cause. This is a great book for girl scout leaders and classroom teachers who deal with young girls with big ideas. I highly recommend it for all kids and their mentors!

Format: Paperback
I read this book in a single sitting. It was so well written and full of moving tales of children who have struggled against sometimes insurmountable odds to make the world a better place that I couldn't tear myself away from it.
If you're looking for inspiring examples of children who have made a huge difference in our communities, indeed the world, this book is a must read. In fact, it should be required reading for every child, every parent, every teacher, every scout leader, and every minister in the country! It's that inspiring.
It also contains a wealth of good information on how children can become effective leaders!
