Changing the world doesn't have to involve a grandiose idea; it can be as simple as everyday acts of kindness and good deeds. This picture book reminds us that sharing your heart is the key, and it's filled with loads of ideas to get your young leader started. The illustrations have a lot to offer and fun speech bubbles that add to the rhyming text. (5 Kids' Books for Changing the World)--The Children's Book Review

Most would consider affecting world change before bedtime as a lofty goal, however, this child-friendly book suggests it's totally possible for even the youngest of children. Opportunities to make a positive impact and create social justice are all around us. Simply eat right, clean up the Earth, conserve, recycle, help others who need it, and work in groups when one person isn't enough to make the change. The text promotes an interactive experience that allows the reader to take ownership of the book by providing a space to draw a self-portrait, including a directions page that details how to make your own superhero cape, and suggestions for how children and adults can help out in their communities. The bold, child-friendly illustrations propel the reader to feel motivated and inspired to jump into action and do good things for others.--Youth Services Book Review

The cover of this beautiful book engages you before you even start reading. Rhyming text, delightful and unique illustrations, speech bubbles, and cute animal characters - little ones will love reading about kind and caring deeds we can do every day. As a mom and teacher, I simply love the wonderful and heartfelt message this book delivers to our most precious readers. The illustrations are adorable with pen and paper cut outs and other interesting media. Bonus: Special pages in the back of the book to write your own good deeds or acts of kindness and additional examples of helping out from the writing and drawing team. --Midwest Book Review
