Reviews

Kids don't often get a chance to help others outside their families in meaningful ways. This book may change that....It's a sure bet for groups and families focused on doing some community service.
--Kirkus Reviews

This encouraging book presents examples of children volunteering to help others and enjoying the process...Clearly, the answer to the title's question is an emphatic "Yes!"
--Booklist

A good choice for schools with a strong emphasis on community service.
--School Library Journal

The clear project descriptions and lively photographs show that volunteering is something that any youngster can do, with a little adult supervision. Hopefully it will encourage readers to become active, contributing members of their own communities.
