Taking a close look at peaceful revolutions from around the world, this important book gives young readers the information and encouragement they need to be part of a better future—for themselves and for all of us.

From Gandhi to Rosa Parks, the Arab Spring to Black Lives Matter, this introduction to the power of protests covers nearly every continent to show young readers that they can be effective on their own or as part of a movement. Filled with colorful, detailed illustrations and straightforward, engaging texts, this book uses double-page spreads to tell the story of world-changing moments when justice prevailed over intolerance, and peace overcame conflict. Neither preachy nor pedantic, the text offers clear-eyed information in a way that kids can relate to, helping them understand issues that they are probably already aware of, such as climate change, and introducing them to events which happened decades ago or worlds away. Throughout this optimistic and hopeful book, the message is clear—peaceful protest can effect change, and everyone’s voice matters.
