" A pretty good anthology on how kids can make a difference. " said.

" Make your child an activist today. " said.

" A truly inspiring collection of stories, poems, and quotations about characteristics that will build stronger children. A little disappointing; I thought sometimes the book was written just to showcase the compiler's own writings. " said.

" This is an awesome collection of poems, short stories, quotes, and fables. It is organized into sections of ways we can make a difference as individuals, such as working together, being honest, treating others with respect, and being generous. I am using some of the fables for teaching inferring. However, I could use the poems for a variety of lessons and activities as well. " said.

" A nice collection of poems, fables, and folktales from around the world, all used to illustrate 12 different ways that kids can make a difference. The 12 ways are separated into chapters (i.e., "I can make a difference by being courageous, "...by caring and serving," etc.) With illustrations by Barry Moser, who incidentally rocks, this is a strong collection despite a few clunkers. " said.

"Truly a treasure! Filled with inspirational quotes, anecdotes, fables, poems, and parables, Edelman sets forth a sampling that makes one think and inspires one to make a difference. A great book for children of all ages and adults who would like to remember old truths and think about new directions. Also a great book to use with children in the classroom for a variety of purposes, including journals and story starters.

My favorite pieces...? "Fire, Water, Truth, and Falsehood" and the story related to gossip and the tearing of a feather pillow with the dictate to capture all the feathers that took flight in the wind. Regarding the former, an Ethiopian tale, Wind, in settling the dispute regarding which is more powerful, Falsehood or Truth, declares, "I see now that Falsehood is very powerful. But it can only rule where Truth has stopped struggling to be heard." Speaking of powerful...!

" I've had this book for years but finally read it today. This is an inspiring collection of poems, short stories and ideas on how we can all make a difference in the world. Great for kids of all ages. " said.
