It Takes a Child book


On an ordinary morning like any other, twelve-year-old Craig Kielburger woke to his alarm clock and hurried downstairs to wolf down a bowl of cereal over the newspaper's comics before school. But what he discovered on the paper's front page would change his life—and eventually affect over a million young people worldwide.

It Takes a Child is a fun, colorful look back at Craig's adventures in taking global action. Craig invites young readers along on a rollicking, eye-opening journey through South Asia, learning about global poverty and child labor. Along the way, he and his friend Alam brave wild rickshaw rides, meet world leaders and befriend kids just like them with heartbreaking stories of bravery.

Illustrated and adapted by Marisa Antonello, this incredible story truly demonstrates you're never too young to change the world!
