REVIEWS for YOU ARE MIGHTY

“A guide to changing the world might seem intimidating, but Paul breaks down activism … in an easily digestible way. Tamaki’s sketched illustrations complement and enhance the writing. VERDICT Every public library should purchase a copy.
— SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
What I love about You Are Mighty: A Guide to Changing the World by Caroline Paul and Lauren Tamaki is that it gives kids ideas for ways to make a difference, ranging from small changes at the family level (like, use fewer plastic bags) to creative inventions that could actually make massive change. The book helps them hone their ideas, and I like that the book includes tons of DIY projects to try out along the way.
