If Kids Ran the World

We rated this book:


There are so many ideals mentioned in If Kids Ran the World, it is almost overwhelming for young readers. Lacking a character or a single focus, it covers most every idealistic thought any young kid may wish. However, the book could be used as a tool by parents or teachers, using each page as a discussion point, to draw out an individual child’s values and dreams they may have for the world. Exploring each ideal individually, would allow child and adult reader to discuss ideals more thoroughly, identifying concrete examples in the child’s world.

Kudos do go to the illustrations, for they show page after page kids with ‘differences’ working together as if there were none; wonderfully rendered.

The concluding pages, affirming children’s ideal beliefs, are the heart of the book. “…kids know that everyone can learn to share…Kids know how to try to do their very best…And kids know that the most important thing in the world isn’t money, or being king or queen, or pushing other people around. It’s love: giving it, sharing it, showing it.”
