'Kidstory' by Tom Adams and Sarah Walsh
Kids can and do make a difference! In 'Kidstory: 50 Children and Young People Who Shook Up The World', author Tom Adams and illustrator Sarah Walsh share empowering and motivating stories about real young people who have made a big difference. Each beautifully illustrated spread features one of 50 amazing young inventors, artists, activists, and athletes and the true stories behind how their actions shook up the world. We learn the back story of each of these individuals, the problems they confronted, and the solutions/changes they made to help their families and communities.
I love the diversity of the young people featured in this book. Readers will discover the stories of people from all over the world and time periods. Their are history makers of many different races and abilities. No matter who you are, you can find someone in this book with whom you relate or can draw inspiration.
Lovers of nonfiction like the National Geographic series will love this anthology. The short biographies are filled with interesting facts and trivia. The beautiful artwork by Sarah Walsh is supplemented by actual photographs and quotes. Let's take a peek inside!
