Free The Children was a very emotionally touching book. At the age of eleven seeing someone my age make a difference really inspired me. Now I am working harder at learning the affects of child labor. This is a great book for both children and adults alike.

My daughter has been telling me all about Free the Children's work for years. She has been to We Day Vancouver multiple times, Take Action Academy, We Day Toronto and this year she won the Canadian Living Me to We Youth in Action Award. To say she has been inspired by Craig and his story would be an understatement. So I've had a long standing respect for Free the Children and Me to We but I didn't know the story behind the organization. Caitie has owned Craig's book for years now so I dug it off her bookshelf and jumped into it. Yes, this is a biographical memoir but it is so much more than that. It is an amazing story of how a 12-year old boy started a worldwide movement. Craig is a gifted writer. What could be a dry read (so often these kinds of books tend toward the boring) is instead a book that is filled with adventure, humour and passion. I found myself experiencing a whole range of emotions: awe, pride, sadness, fear, worry, respect and happiness. A book that can take you on a ride like that, surely is a keeper. I'm now recommending this book to all the young people in my life. This is more than just the story of a young Craig Kielburger or the story of the start of a movement. This is a story of enlightenment. A story that will inspire you to take action to make this planet a better place for everyone who lives on it and to become an informed citizen. And it isn't just children who should read the book: adults everywhere will learn much from this story. If you are thinking of something to buy a young person in your life, this is the perfect gift. One that has the potential to change someone's life forever!
