Service Learning for children
If you are guiding children into service learning, here are some fabulous books to help you:
The Complete Guide to Service Learning 2nd Ed: Proven, Practical Ways to Engage Students in Civic Responsibility, Academic Curriculum, & Social Action (Rev & Upd 2nd Ed) [Paperback] by Cathryn Berger Kaye. This book is a very inspiring guide to implementing service learning projects in each classroom. It offers countless practical, specific, easy ways for teachers to teach their students new skills and the value of contributing to their community. I would definitely say that this book is a must-read for any teacher or parent!
A Kids' Guide to Helping Others Read & Succeed: How to Take Action! [Paperback] also by
Cathryn Berger Kaye, is a powerful tool for children to help them make a difference.
Since he was five years old, Bilaal Rajan has worked to raise money for others. To date he has raised over $5 million for various causes and is the youngest Ambassador ever for UNICEF, worldwide. His book Making Change will show children how they, too, can make a difference. http://www.makingchangenow.com/about.php
