This uplifting book inspires the next generation to step up and make the world a better place. In keeping with the Nat Geo Kids mission, it is full of practical, positive, and powerful ideas that every kid can consider, from simple acts of kindness to creative adventures to good-for-the-planet projects.
Who says kids can’t change the world? If they’ve got the will, Nat Geo Kids can guide the way, with doable activities, hands-on projects, advice from National Geographic explorers, interviews with experts, weird-but-true facts, and more inspiration. Actions can be as easy as carrying a resuable water bottle to avoid wasting plastic or planting a tree to help the ecosystem. Ideas are presented as simple concepts with engaging graphics and photographs, and many are followed by detailed supporting information. Kids get a sense of their own power to make a difference and an understanding of what actions contribute to postive outcomes. Sometimes all it takes is starting with something simple, and before you know it, together we’ve reshaped our planet for the better.
