Orca Book Publishers
This around-the-world tour introduces readers to children who have taken on the role of social activist, fighting for human rights and social justice in countries as diverse as Yemen and Congo, Canada and the United States. Ten children receive main profiles, and over a dozen others are featured in smaller sidebars. Anita Khushwaha fought against gender and class bias in her community in India. Emman Bagual founded Mind Your Rights to fight child labor in the Philippines. Zach Bonner walked 1,000 miles to raise awareness about homeless children in the United States. A diverse range of other issues is covered, including aboriginal rights, human trafficking and child soldiers, and the full United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child can be found alongside tips for how kids everywhere can make a difference.
Ten biographies and accompanying portraits of children from around the world who have taken on the role of social activist.

This book is very interesting because you can learn about the human rights of the kids and how the kids stand up against the people that are denied their rights

This book was a little sad because of when they were telling you what happened to the kids before they changed the world!

This book is amazing. It shows the courageous actions of different children around the world that address different problems that plague children. I especially like this part of the book where it says, "We are the children of the future, but we are also the present." It shows that even though we are young, we still have a lot of power in our hands to change the world. This book definitely inspired me to show my potential to the world and help make the world a better place!

It was a very emotional book. It's about kids who suffered sometimes about bullying and other things. I hope those kids now have a happy life.
