Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Craig and Marc Kielburger's work through Free The Children has inspired tens of thousands of people to bring about the changes they seek in their own lives and in the world."—Margaret Atwood, Author
Library Journal - BookSmack!
Brothers Craig and Marc Kielburger, founders of Free the Children, offer this glossy book on helping children develop advocacy skills and recognize that their contribution to humanitarian causes are not only possible but desperately needed. With offerings from the likes of Jane Goodall, Jane Fonda, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu and boasting a new foreword from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the text is divided into the "Three C's" (compassion, courage, and community), giving examples for nurturing global citizens on a broad scale as well as through small, everyday actions. Slick and elegant, this inspiring text has many audiences and, as part of Free the Children's "Me to We" campaign, sales go toward donating a notebook to a child in a developing country. Julianne J. Smith, "Parenting Short Takes", Booksmack!, 10/21/10
