Read in February, 2010

Somewhere today someone is: reading a book about peace, learning to do something a new way, fixing toys to give away, planting a tree, visiting an old friend, caring for someone who is ill.... Photo montages show children and adults engaged in activities that positively impact the world. The text is lyrical, the photos are multicultural, and the message important. Photos show kids that it's people like themselves who act. At the same time, I would give a higher rating if the aesthetic of the book were more compelling. This is pretty basic looking.
