Real kids make a real difference in their communities in this vibrantly photographed chronicle by George Ancona.
George Ancona celebrates the joy of kids giving back. In one after-school program, middle-school students mentor and tutor younger children. Via a special partnership, schoolchildren help professionals train assistance dogs for people with disabilities. At a community farm, families plant, grow, and harvest produce for soup kitchens and charities. In these and other examples of volunteering, kids of all ages work together knitting hats and scarves for those who could use warm clothes, packing hot meals to deliver to housebound people, and keeping roadways clean. Young humanitarians reading these accounts may well be inspired to find ways that they can help, too.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
How Can We Help is a wordy picture book showing how kids can help with the world/environment. It gives examples of what kids like you can do! Other readers would enjoy this book because it shows that kids can help and how they care about the world too. It is interesting to see what kids all around the world can do. My book buddy’s (5 years old) favorite part was when they knitted things (hats, gloves, scarves, etc.) to homeless or weak people. She thought it was very sweet to do that. My book buddy didn’t like how long it was and she thought it was a little boring to read. This was her opinion, but other little kids may enjoy this book. Review by Sofia H, age 11, American Mensa
