Making a Difference: Small Acts/Big Impact
In these real-life stories, people have an impact on their communities by having the courage to act in ways that make a difference. Those actions might involve nature, such as saving bees from the burning rooftop of Notre-Dame or protecting the desert through a national park, or involve an artist deciding to paint everyday working-class lives. Each of these book creators also make a difference by selecting the stories they tell as another form of action.
