By elfdart on September 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is one of those activism books for kids, aged 9- 12. I like it a bit more than the other `how to' activism for kids books out there because it isn't telling kids to fight the world's evils, it isn't telling them that the world is going to end unless they do this, and it isn't at all large-scale. Many of the suggestions in this book only immediately effect the person who is doing them and the person/ people they're interacting with. Instead of listing all of the actions I'm just going to summarize the gist of them by category.

There are a few actions that suggest how to interact with people more, like your parents or your grandmother. In general, many of the actions tell the reader to do more things with people. This is an important suggestion with the rise of technology. Kids are spending more and more of their free time alone in front of some electronic device or another, and while this is fun for them for the moment, too much of this behaviour can alienate them from their friends and family.

So in addition to the do things with people group of actions, there are the `do things' actions. Things like playing or writing a letter, grow something and eat it, these help get kids off the couch.
Then of course there are the environmentally aware actions, but it goes about presenting this in a kid friendly way. One of these is to love your stuff, it doesn't say this, but by loving your stuff you won't rush out to buy new stuff and you'll value what you have. There are also the standard `don't waste power' actions, but they give you some real life examples like shower time and junk mail.

There are also the `educate yourself' actions. These suggest that you learn another language or learn about a cause to support or to bug your parents about.

Wide variety of suggestions for students in grades 3-7. The beauty of this book is the voice of the author--humorous, down-on-kids-level. The format, layout and design is appealing and kid-friendly. This is the kind of book I'd like to have in a classroom library - for reading and then writing a response or an action plan, for discussing in small groups, for launching an inquiry, as a mentor text for writing workshop. Lots of potential.
