It can be hard to remember that Pete Buttigieg is just 37 - his deep baritone and evenness of tone can often seem like a mismatch with his relative youth among the Democratic field. Mr. Buttigieg projected steadiness and thoroughness as he faced questions about his consulting work at McKinsey & Company, his service in Afghanistan, his faith and his challenges in attracting support from minorities and younger voters, despite being the youngest candidate in the contest. I’m not going to pretend that that wasn’t on my mind, too.

"It's Our World Too!" takes its title from an incident where a child was told that they could not sign a petition against the spread of nuclear weapons because he was too young. So he started his own petition for children because it is their world too. This book contains the inspiring and motivating true stories of children who are making a difference in their neighborhoods and the world. Each story is well told with pictures of the young people involved. The stories are organized into sections on Taking a Stand, Reaching Out to Others, Healing the Earth, and Creating a Safer Future. In a society where only the bad young people make the news, it is refreshing to have a book that shows there are those that are making a positive difference.
The second portion of the book is an instructional guide and handbook for anyone who wants to follow the path of the young people in the book. It is full of detailed suggestions on how to organize, plan, and carry out programs for social change.
A must read book for teenagers and adults these people and those like them are our hope for a bright future.

I read this book in a single sitting. It was so well written and full of moving tales of children who have struggled against sometimes insurmountable odds to make the world a better place that I couldn't tear myself away from it.
If you're looking for inspiring examples of children who have made a huge difference in our communities, indeed the world, this book is a must read. In fact, it should be required reading for every child, every parent, every teacher, every scout leader, and every minister in the country! It's that inspiring.
It also contains a wealth of good information on how children can become effective leaders!

This book is a great resource for young activists. It opens up with inspiring stories of children who made a difference in their communities and the world and closes with a detailed instructional guide that tells you how to become an activist yourself. Although this book is written for kids ages 9-12, everyone can get something out of it. The second part of the book, a handbook for young activists, can be very useful to adults and teens as well as the intended audience. There are detailed suggestions on how to organize, plan and get the word out about your cause. This is a great book for girl scout leaders and classroom teachers who deal with young girls with big ideas. I highly recommend it for all kids and their mentors!
