Kids Make It Better: A Write-In, Draw-In Journal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ask a kid a question, and you never know what will tumble out. Here, from bestselling author and brilliant child-at-heart Suzy Becker, is a marvelously interactive way to involve kids in the challenges of life, from what to do about the ozone layer to how to mend a broken heart. Surprising, imaginative, funny, wise, The Kids Make It Better Book is a pure delight, combining a "kids say the darndest things" and Children's Letters to God humor with a greater goal: that of teaching kids the value of being engaged.

Each "problem" begins with a spread that asks a question and gives one or more solutions from children--illustrated in whimsical full-color drawings by the author. Then the reader is presented with two pages of fill-ins, prompts, and a space to draw his or her own ideas. How do you fix a bad economy? "The government should have a bake sale," says Jennifer, age 9. What would you do to improve schools? "Put chocolate milk in the water fountain."--Robert, age 8. What can we do to take better care of our water? "Have scientists make fish that love to eat tons of pollution."--Jackie, age 9. And finally, a question on the nature of helping itself: The biggest challenge of all might be getting people up off their couches to do something. Any ideas? "Put spikes on the couches"--Micah, age 10.

Here is an inspiring call to action--the whimsical wisdom of kids combined with an interactive journal. Plus a step-by-step plan for bringing your Make-It-Better ideas to life.

What can we do to clean up our air? Johanna, age 8, has a terrific solution: "Have all the people get a hose and wash the pollution away. It might make a rainbow." What's your terrific solution?

From helping the environment to how to stop nail-biting, the world needs your ideas. Yes, kids can!
