IT'S OUR WORLD, TOO! by Phillip Hoose

IT'S OUR WORLD, TOO!

Stories of Young People Who Are Making a Difference
Age Range: 10 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Two books in one: first, 14 fascinating accounts of children working for human rights, the needy, the environment, or world peace (e.g., the Swedish first- and second-graders who founded the Children's Rain Forest; and the young New Mexicans who, inspired by Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, hope to build a peace statue in Los Alamos); second, a handbook for young activists, with practical suggestions for planning, organizing, publicizing, and raising funds for social action projects. The author's experience as a tenant organizer and a staff member of the Nature Conservancy is evident; with its inspirational examples and down-to-earth advice, the book should be very helpful to young people in schools, churches, clubs, and scouting who are planning service projects. Unusually attractive typography and layout, with lots of quotes, photos, etc., in the ample margins; sample documents; annotated lists of printed resources and organizations. (Nonfiction. 10+)
