Can We Help?
Kids Volunteering to Help Their Communities
author/illustrator: George Ancona
In one after-school program, middle-school students mentor and tutor younger children. Via a special partnership, schoolchildren help professionals train assistance dogs for people with disabilities. At a community farm, families plant, grow, and harvest produce for soup kitchens and charities. Real kids make a real difference in their communities in this vibrantly photographed chronicle by George Ancona.
“Kids don’t often get a chance to help others outside their families in meaningful ways. This book may change that.” — Kirkus Reviews
