Publisher's Description

Ask a kid a question, and you never know what will tumble out. Here, from bestselling author and brilliant child-at-heart Suzy Becker, is a marvelously interactive way to involve kids in the challenges of life, from what to do about the ozone layer to how to mend a broken heart. Surprising, imaginative, funny, wise, The Kids Make It Better Book is a pure delight, combining a "kids say the darndest things" and Children's Letters to God humor with a greater goal: that of teaching kids the value of being engaged.

Each "problem" begins with a spread that asks a question and gives one or more solutions from children—illustrated in whimsical full-color drawings by the author. Then the reader is presented with two pages of fill-ins, prompts, and a space to draw his or her own ideas. How do you fix a bad economy? "The government should have a bake sale," says Jennifer, age 9. What would you do to improve schools? "Put chocolate milk in the water fountain."—Robert, age 8. What can we do to take better care of our water? "Have scientists make fish that love to eat tons of pollution."—Jackie, age 9. And finally, a question on the nature of helping itself: The biggest challenge of all might be getting people up off their couches to do something. Any ideas? "Put spikes on the couches"—Micah, age 10.
