The Nature of Stammering 09/08/22
Hope on the Horizon
Publisher: Wren & Rook
What do you do when the world seems cruel and unkind? It can be difficult to find hope that things can get better – but as this inspiring and accessible handbook shows, no-one is too small to make a difference, and the tiny acts of compassion we do today can make big differences to the future.
With a gentle, warm, and encouraging voice, author and activist Onjali Q. Raúf neatly outlines all the little things we can do to change the world, from standing up to bullies to finding the courage to ask for help. Each chapter, gorgeously illustrated in black and white, takes inspiration from fictional characters, like Charlie Bucket or She-Ra, and shares the stories of real-life activists, from Greta Thunberg to Marcus Rashford.
Alongside each story, there are some questions for the reader to think about – who is somebody that is always there for you? What are some causes that you care about? – and some little actions that lead the way into changing the world, whether it’s helping a neighbour with a chore, or writing to an MP. This truly interactive, inspirational guide is a must-have for young people hoping to change the world for the better through kindness and empathy.
