9EAJ's book review for 'You can change the world!'
This book was written to make people aware that some people in society have had different experiences to others. Some faced overcoming difficulties with disabilities and some rose to challenges such as starting their own clubs when they were left out of existing ones due to discrimination.
One memorable story was about a teenager called Will who raised 10,000 pennies for charity to help people who suffered with prostate cancer like his dad. In another, someone changed the way things were done in a supermarket to make it more environmentally friendly. Another chose to raise £9000 from their Bat Mitzvah (instead of receiving presents) for a charity which supported girls and women around the world who were experiencing challenges.
This book made us think about whether people in our school community are experiencing or have experienced similar difficulties. It also encouraged us to discuss how we could help people in these situations and reflect on how people’s lives can be affected by certain difficulties. It was inspirational!
