Stand Against (Library Binding)
Young readers are still forming their beliefs about the world around them. Their families, friends, teachers, and the media have a great effect on what they will stand for--and against. In this set, readers encounter four important topics: animal cruelty, poverty and hunger, waste and pollution, and prejudice. Each book looks at the many aspects of the topic, such as animal treatment in zoos or ageism, and gives readers information to get a broad, but age-appropriate, perspective on the main topic. Several sections of tips aid readers in taking action--and standing against--the problems they see in their own communities.
