Children Who Changed the World
Incredible True Stories about Children’s Rights!
‘Children Who Changed the World’ is absorbing. Despite desperate circumstances, children around the world demand change, take the initiative and make a difference.
We do not know these stories and I suggest you will not either. Take the example of Mohamad Al Jounde who took photographs of refugee children in the camp to which his family fled. He resolved they deserved an education like all other children. Thereafter, in 2017, Mohamad won the International Children’s Peace Prize.
These prizewinning children deserve to have their stories known.
Mayra Avellar Neves organised peaceful protests against violence in the Brazilian favelas. Thereafter, Barauni started a radio programme across Africa, giving children an opportunity to share their hopes and concerns. Kesz began begging for his family when he was just a toddler. However, his rescue when he was recovering from injuries suffered in a fire, inspired the Children’s Community Children organisation. This gifts toys, shoes, toothbrushes and health care to thousands of destitute Philippine children.
Like Stories for Kids Who Dare To Be Different, these subjects inspire, shame and inform. Furthermore, we are richer for knowing the work of wonderful children who persevere despite adversity.
Marcia Williams’ double-pages feature different children. We are offered basic details, an introduction, before a sequenced, narrative and graphic story, and conclusion. It seems like there is a fluency and structure to the book that inspires readers to continue.
Bookwagon is proud to recommend ‘Children Who Changed the World’.
