interesting book that will appeal to kids - especially empowering them to take action locally that has a big impact. I liked that it was written in short chapters - I think I'd like to put a copy in the science classroom for school-wide DEAR time.
My one problem is that the writing didn't seem to carry me through - didn't make me want to turn the page to the next chapter. But it was full of interesting examples of people taking action to change their lives and their communities for the better, from throughout North America (Canada, US, Mexico), and inclusive of many different ethnic groups.
fuller review coming later, after I check it out with some students
