Stories of real teens creating change show readers how they too can make the world a better place.
GENERATION FIX is the only kid's book that features real life stories of kids doing incredible things to make the world a better place. Capturing kids ideas on how to solve the problems that we face in this world - hunger, homelessness, violence, discrimination, and problems with health care, education, and the environment - the book also inspires them to take action with their own ideas and resources. GENERATION FIX profiles 20+ kids who have changed the world by taking action on their ideas. Each chapter also includes resources and activities for kids to get involved right now in their communities and a place for kids to write down their own solutions to world problems. The book will include smart, funny, and dead serious ideas for kids across the country who are brainstorming methods for improving the world.
Elizabeth is an award-winning book author, magazine writer, editor, writing teacher, and speaker. Her wide-ranging passions include astronomy, volcanology, art, music, history, nature, waves, jokes, crayons, and mud — anything that catches her fancy. She is inspired by stories of exploration and discovery, stories that have been overlooked by history, and stories that grapple with persistent questions. Whether writing fiction or nonfiction for children or adults or teaching workshops, I hope my work opens doors, opens minds, opens possibilities.
