Kids don’t necessarily think about “power” per se, but they do wonder: What makes a king a king, or a queen a queen? Does having lots of money make you powerful? What makes you the boss of me? This brightly illustrated book answers these and other questions in a relatable way. Young readers will learn to “see” this invisible force and to understand their “everyday power.” Includes quotes and stories from inspiring figures like Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Emmeline Pankhurst, Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai, Alan Turing, and Stephen Hawking, and thought-provoking discussions on war, bullying, racism, sexism, and homophobia, with prompts for self-reflection.
