How can I make a difference in the world? I'm just an ordinary kid!
That may be true, but you can still make your life a gift to others. This book by thirteen-year-old author, spokeschild, and world traveller Sondra Clark describes how even small actions can make a big difference.
In You Can Change Your World!, Sondra shows step by step how to become closer to your family, make your school and community stronger, and volunteer to help others. Watch for cool ideas like these:
* Slip an I love you note in your Dad's pocket.
* If you see someone sitting alone at lunch, invite them to sit with your group.
* Organize a glove and hat drive in the winter and donate items to a shelter.
* Be a volunteer tooth brusher at a crocodile ranch (Oh! This is one you don't want to get involved with.)
* Read to residents of an assisted living center.
* Help out at a wildlife center or nature habitat.
Though she's had some extraordinary experiences, Sondra has found plenty of everyday ways to make a difference. It begins, she says, by doing something nice for someone else. But once you start, watch out: You never know where one act of kindness may lead you!
Twelve-year-old Sondra offers fun and practical tips to help her peers get involved in service opportunities at home, at school, and in their communities.
In her last book, the industrious Sondra Clark mobilized her tween peers to dream big dreams and make them happen. Now, in You Can Change Your World!, Clark challenges readers ages 8-13 with a new vision to improve their homes, their schools, and the world.Making a difference begins, Sondra says, by keeping your eyes open for ways to do something nice for someone else. Sometimes it's as simple as being nice to your pesky little brother or collecting shampoos and soaps for a women's shelter. Other times it may require more sacrifice, such as donating time and energy to volunteer with the Special Olympics.As the author of three books and a spokeschild for Childcare International, Sondra Clark knows what it takes to make a difference in the world. In this book, she shares plenty of practical ways for readers to better the lives of their families and friends and to improve their schools, communities, and beyond. Crammed with fun stories, realistic tips, and creative ideas, You Can Change Your World! is sure to delight and inspire kids-and their parents, too.
