Review: 101 Small Ways to Change The World (How you (yes, you) can make a difference!)

Every idea in this brightly illustrated, compact book is small, but the strategies within have huge potential. 101 Small Ways to Change the World (How you (yes, you) can make a difference!), written by Aubre Andrus, is a practical, fun, hands-on guide. Whilst it is designed for children, as part of the Lonely Planet Kids Series, this book has appeal for all ages.

Containing bite-sized, easily achievable actions, every reader will find a way they can truly make a difference. It would make a thoughtful gift for a child who is beginning to understand the interconnectedness of our world and how every person's actions can have an impact. It could also provide a wealth of discussion topics and practical projects for a family, youth group or school class.

This book is presented in 3 sections, beginning with 'Caring for Others', then 'Caring for the Planet' and ending with the important, but not always considered, 'Caring for Yourself'. It is this unique combination of approaches and the wide variety and achievable nature of the strategies that elevate this book to something quite special.
