Get Involved! explores the world of social activism. Activists are people who want to make change for the better. They educate, agitate, and offer assistance. They also speak out for others when they cannot speak for themselves. This fascinating series will inspire students to learn about the rights all humans have as well as their responsibilities for the world, its peoples, and animals. Examples show children how to become a positive advocate and how to peacefully change the world. "Special Field Notes" sections bring the words of activists to life. Each book features: stimulating images of activists at work; “In the Trenches” biographies of actual activists, including those who became activists or were inspired to be activists as children; “Get Active!” boxes that encourage exploration and research and give students examples of everyday ways to get socially active.
