At school, we constantly discuss how we can be kinder, more helpful, more responsible and more caring individuals, both in the classrooms and playground and beyond. Children are rewarded for displaying such virtues in our Rainbow Book so we always are thinking about how we can make life better for others. This also includes how we can better care for our environment and raise money for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Little Book for Big Change sits well not only with our values but with anyone who feels strongly about making a difference. It covers concerns such as global warming, education (and fair access to it for all children), hunger and human rights and suggests ways in which children can think about these topics and try to make a difference. For example, they are asked to make a list of things they actually need as opposed to what they just want, to highlight the difference between the two situations. There are also tips on small ways to help the environment, such as turning lights off when you aren't in a room, eating fruit and vegetables that are in season, rather than imported by air, and planting trees. There are also interesting and fun activities such as making a T shirt bag and making your own compost that young children will enjoy doing.
This new release from Studio Press will be a welcome addition to our Library and Staffroom, which is where I intend to place it. The book appeals to children but I feel it has the most impact when adults share it with young people to talk through the issues and ensure that they understand the importance of subsequent actions. Additionally, some of the activities will be more appropriate with adult help, especially with younger children.
Little Book for Big Changes is an excellent resource to use either in school settings or at home to encourage children and their families and friends to make a difference.
