"Simple questions (“How can I make the world a better place?”) and straightforward takeaways (“Being an ally means standing up if you see someone being treated unfairly”) make this a matter-of-fact instruction manual for spreading kindness: “Every person, no matter how small, can do something to change the world for us all.”–Publishers Weekly
"The author’s note sums up the value of the book as a way to help verbalize the injustice in the world in a way kids will understand and empower them to make a difference by giving them things they can do. VERDICT This vividly illustrated manual teaches kids how to be allies, optimistic, and think how they can participate in change. A necessary purchase."–School Library Journal
