Are there people who tell you how to behave, what to do, what to say or not to say, among other things? Maybe it's your parents, teachers, older siblings, or grandparents. These people have POWER. This is neither good nor bad, it depends on how it is used. In this book we will see the different types of power in the world and how they affect your life. You will also learn to use your power (yes, you have a lot of power too!) To make a positive impact on your life and the lives of others.

REVIEWS

This book is an introduction to the idea of ​​power, who has it, how they get it, and who can vote and who can't. It also covers ideas like whether money makes you powerful and why there are fewer women in history books than men. This is a hard-hitting book, so be prepared for the questions and the curiosity and inspiration that children will feel after reading it. I especially like the chapter on invisible rules and social norms. What this book will do is inspire children to embody change.

Blog Let them be small.
