Can We Help?

By George Ancona
Illustrated by George Ancona

“Kids don’t often get a chance to help others outside their families in meaningful ways. This book may change that.” — Kirkus Reviews

In one after-school program, middle-school students mentor and tutor younger children. Via a special partnership, schoolchildren help professionals train assistance dogs for people with disabilities. At a community farm, families plant, grow, and harvest produce for soup kitchens and charities. Real kids make a real difference in their communities in this vibrantly photographed chronicle by George Ancona.

  • By highlighting young people experiencing what it is like to give back, the book encourages volunteerism from a young age.
  • George Ancona's photographs capture the joy in helping out.
  • Kids working together for a greater good is a theme that carries across this book and It's Our Garden.
