Filled with inspiring stories and anecdotes, this collection of brief biographies is a great, relatable look at the lives of activists whose lives young readers might not fully understand. Kid Activists: Tales of Childhood from Chanpions of Change looks at each activist’s focus, then at the childhood events that helped form his or her activism. While some events (such as the life of a newly freed enslaved person) are glossed over and given an overly positive spin, that same positivity can help inspire readers to overcome obstacles and follow their dreams, and to stand up for what they believe in.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
