  2.

Wilson has written a number of texts on how children can help to change to world This book focuses on child activists efforts to draw attention to children s rights as delineated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child While OUR RIGHTS is an attractive and colorful text, there is far too much social justice jargon in it Generally speaking it is not written in accessible, child friendly language I really think would have been less say focusing on five kids in detail than the ten we have [...]


  7. I honestly enjoyed this book The story that caught my attention from the start was the one about kids wanting their school back I highly recommend everyone to read this I never knew that kids were capable of doing these things The fact that they stood up for what is right is remarkable This book shows you many different true story s about kids who are around the ages 5 15 For the kids who are younger in this book takes real courage The fact that they all made a difference is inspiring.


  8. The kids are so inspiring I love how some of them help kids in situations that they themselves have never been in And some are giving back to the kids who are suffering the same fate they once were The stories of Zach Bonner, Ndale the child soldier, and Hannwool the bullied child especially inspired me My favorite book


  9. i thought this book was ok,it had a good meaning for kids to stand up for what they belive ins amazing to think thats some really little kids are making a diffrence just as much as the older kids are.


  10. in my opion this book does not deserve to be in sliver birch it only talks abouut how kids chnage the world theres diffrent storys, but after awhile its gets boring that why i rated only 2 starssorry


  11. A great book to share with your classroom as a read aloud, reading a couple of pages at a time and discussing how the featured kids made a difference in the world.
