Format Price Qty

Making a Difference is a series about making the world a better place. Each title features 12 engaging, inspiring, often touching stories from the present and the past of individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, and communities helping people, animals, and the planet. Some work on a national or global scale, with ample resources. Others are grassroots, local, and on a shoestring. All are proof that caring counts and anyone can get involved, including kids and teens. When earthquakes rocked Mexico in 2017, UNICEF brought drinking water and blankets. They also got children back to school. When wildfires raced through California in 2018, an MLB player and his teammates raised money for fire victims. Soon after Superstorm Sandy hit in 2012, an 11yearold Florida boy designed a better sandbag. This book features 12 stories about making a difference when disaster strikes. Each chapter includes attentiongrabbing photos and fascinating facts. Sidebars go beyond the basics, and prompts invite readers to think for themselves. A Ways You Can Help page offers suggestions anyone can try.

School Library Journal - Series Made Simple

Series Review – Comined Publishers: COVID-19 is the topic on everyone’s mind this year. “Core Library Guide to COVID-19” (ABDO/Core Library) is a straightforward source, with plenty of research ideas. Surviving Social Media (Capstone/Compass Point) is a timely title to help readers understand and avoid misinformation and hate online. “Bo and Zop Learn How to Be an Earthling” (Crabtree), “Soft Skills Sleuth: Investigating Life Skills Success” (Cherry Lake), and “The Museum of Phobias” (Gareth Stevens) are fun, quirky alternatives to traditional nonfiction. “Kid Citizen” (Rourke/Ready Readers) and “Making a Difference” (Bookstaves/12-Story Library) will inspire children who are wondering what they can do for people in need during this crisis.
