Children who Changed the World

Jenny Strömstedt, illustrated by Beata Boucht

Greta Thunberg has shown the entire world that children can make an impact on our planet. She is one voice, the most well-known campaigner today, yet she is not alone.

In this book, acclai­med journalist Jenny Strömstedt tells us about many fantastic children who have changed the world in different ways. One of them is Louis Braille who was only twelve when he began to develop a braille reading and writing system – one which is still used across the world today. We also hear of Anne Frank’s short life, Malala’s dramatic struggle that led to a Nobel prize, and young Masai Richard Turere who inven­ted a method to protect people against lion attacks. Their stirring, inspiring stories demonstrate clearly that children can make a difference, they can influence and change things – even before they are old enough to vote.

The book is richly illustrated by the award-winning illustrator Beata Boucht.
