A young Craig Kielburger discovers the depths of generosity on the streets of Brazil. After starting Free The Children when he was twelve years old, Craig Kielburger continued his crusade in Brazil. It was on the streets of Salvador, Brazil, that Craig learned the firsthand stories of street children. In this easy-to-read, full-colour illustrated children's book, the reader learns about the joys of these very children. A cut above your typical children's book, this true story culminates in a soccer game using a plastic bottle as a ball. After the game ends, it is a young child named Jose that shows Craig the true meaning of selflessness by giving him his prized possession -- literally the soccer jersey off his back. Perfect for young readers, this adventure reveals how the universal act of generosity defies borders. Co-published with Me to We Books.
"A wonderful testament to being poor in possessions, but rich in spirit. And itís included in a Me to We campaign that gives a notebook to a child in a developing country for every book sold."
Craig Kielburger is the co-founder of Free The Children. His work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, BBC, and The Today Show, and in Time and The Economist.
