"The bright colors should have been an indicator that the book was an easy read for a different audience - but nonetheless was a still a good book.

Very informative and fast read that makes you want to highlight your favorite organizations and get involved locally.

While I should take into consideration her upbringing - I had my own privileges reading it in hardcover at various coffee shops and my own luxury apartment with wondrous air conditioning, running water and hardwood floors. I took the information with a grain of salt and interpreted the information as facts, and to do my own research and efforts after with with I learned as you should too.

"Though I haven't read this book in it's entirety, I have to say I was impressed with the information it provided. This book is a great read for kids (and adults) who want help make the world a better place get inspired and do their part. Chelsea Clinton often uses her own personal experiences, as well as experiences of those she's known or heard of, throughout the book which gives it a personal feel, as if she's standing there talking to you. The information is to-date and the chapters are written in such a way that makes this book as engaging as a work of fiction. I would recommend this book to readers 10+.

So what are you waiting for? Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!

"Great for middle school aged kids and provides a great introduction to world topics. I admire the author's message and for the most part I had no issues with the format. Being an older teen, I picked this up the summer after graduation with hopes it would propel me towards action. Unfortunately, I felt as though Clinton's tone catered more towards younger students who had not encountered upper-level reading before (i.e. a graph is titled "Countries with High Rates of (Meaning Lots of Kids Suffering From) Stunting.") and so I felt it was not quite what I was looking for. Admittedly didn't finish it due to the factor, but I would still suggest it to middle school and even freshmen/sophomores in high school. " said.

"I think what struck me about this was that a book that was meant to be empowering was so depressing to read. Perhaps teachers will find it useful and I did find some inspiration in the young people Chelsea referred to. It does seem like a good catalog of resources and the index may make it more useful.

There are kids who will be able to read just the chapters they are interested in and perhaps be inspired but although it somewhat reminds me of the old "50 Ways to Save the Earth" book, I can't imagine upper Elementary and Middle School teachers finding it as useful in the way of reading aloud.

I absolutely did not like the captions or, now that I think of it, the design of the book made it seem like a student report. That might be useful, but not to my mind inspiring.

"This is a must read for all young women. I highly suggest any parent, grandparent or adult involved with a college-bound child at home to buy this book- and also make their sons read it, too. Every idea that Chelsea maps out begins with an individual persons desire to make a difference. This book is not a memoir or anthology of every organization under the Clinton Global Initiative- it's a platform for liberal Chelsea to expound on what every young person needs to know about- so that they are able to live healthy, fulfilled and motivated lives- well into the 2090's! This book is not Hillary 2016 propaganda- but, inevitably, I now want to support her presidential campaign because of her daughters stance. This book shows that any girl, from any walk of life, anywhere in the world, can make a difference- "or be caught trying."

" Did you know that more than 1 billion people live on less than $1.25 a day, or that in 2012 58 million kids between the ages of 6-11 were not in school? Did you know that 9 countries in the world legally restrict women's movement? Walking, driving, biking, etc., cannot be done without a male member's okay. Do you know what guinea worms are? (they are something the world doesn't have to worry about any more thanks to Jimmy Carter.) Do you know what pangolins are? If not, you better look them up because they may not be around much longer; they are the most endangered mammals on Earth.
This interesting, informative book written by Chelsea Clinton, is a must read for anyone who is interested in trying to make the world a better place for all. Pick it up, read it, and live it!

"Chelsea Clinton writes a book that introduces older kids/pre-teens to their world in different ways. She offers a variety of suggestions in each chapter about how to tackle problems in the world like economic inequality in the U.S. and world, health issues, gender inequality and the environment.

She maintains that doing something even if it's just talking to other people about an issue is a step toward solving a problem. The book is peppered with examples of kids who do more than talk. But all of the activism started with one small action. Clinton has an easy style, she uses a term and then immediately explains in a clear and concise matter.

Her profiles includes how government and private agencies can tackle issues leaving it up to her young reader as to how they want to make their world a better place. Even adults can learn a thing or two....

"Environmental issues and politics have been on my personal interest radar lately, and this book caught my eye when it first arrived. I found it to be easy to read, very well researched, personable, and full of useful resources. At times, the tone felt slightly preachy, but overall, I think Clinton did a good job of outlining the issues and explaining why she thinks they are important not only for adults, but for kids too. Seeing as kids are the main audience for this book, I like how most of the stories and projects mentioned were about kids helping kids or seemed easy enough for kids to get involved. I felt informed and inspired to ‘get going’ after reading this book and found myself visiting the book website to get the list of extensive groups mentioned and their websites. I found the book a little long, but with each section broken up into major areas of concern, a reader could read just one section." said.
