31 Ways to Change the World

We Are What We Do, Author . Candlewick $8.99 (67p) ISBN 978-0-7636-4506-9

Presented by British community interest company We Are What We Do, this stylish handbook features 31 suggestions for changing the world, volunteered by kids. The actions vary from the practical (“Turn things off when you leave the room”) to the civic (“Teach Your Granny to Text”—a crocheted list of gran-centric abbreviations includes IMD or “In my day...”) and cross-cultural. Space is provided for readers to write in their own actions. Optimistic without being contrived, and visually exciting. Ages 8–12. (Mar.)
