Bauer, an educator, wanted others to know the stories of ordinary kids who were doing extraordinary things, which was her inspiration for writing the series.
“I created Young Change Makers because I kept having recurring thoughts about using my author voice to write about kids making a difference and inspiring change,” Bauer said. “These are some absolutely incredible kids. From raising money to help the sick, to planting over a billion trees worldwide, these kids are so caring, inspiring, selfless, and kind. They are taking action to spread joy and love, and I am so excited to share their stories.”
The youngsters showcased in the first book of the series – Young Change Makers: Making a Difference – range from a girl who collects donations for animals each year on her birthday
, to a boy who invented a device to alert parents if their children are left in a hot car.
Through this motivating and uplifting series, Bauer hopes others will be inspired to make a difference.
“These kids are amazing and inspiring, and I am hoping to use the series to inspire kids and adults to take action in a positive way and make the world a better place,” she said.
