Kids are on a mission to make our Earth a better, safer, happier place, and you can join in!


Every day, we see a problem we would like to fix. A piece of rubbish in a green, grassy park. Plastic water bottles buried in the sand at the beach. A garbage bin overflowing onto the street. A skinny, stray dog. A homeless person on a cold day. These problems seem impossible for one person to change. But we can fix them if we each do our part – one step at a time.

This practical guide is designed to empower kids to make changes in their lives to help make a difference in the world. Filled with information, ideas and activities, and interspersed with features on amazing children around the world.

This book shows kids how to:

  • Avoid single-use plastics
  • Throw a plastic-free party
  • Make a compost bin and reduce waste
  • Start a herb garden
  • Grow bee-friendly flowers
  • Learn about where their food comes from
  • Be kinder to others, share and donate

Kids are on a mission to make our earth a better, safer, happier place.

And anyone can join in.

Now she works for a social-purpose publishing house making big differences and helping fund not-for-profits and charities to close the literacy gap.
