Words by Katey Howes
Illustrated by Elizabet Vukovic

"Turning the page is an acceptance of the book creators' challenge—a decision to put passive consumption and inpatient expectancy on the shelf and instead invite your hands to do, to transform and, above all, to MAKE." —Anitra Rowe Schulte

"Together the text and the illustrations create an excellent read that will empower readers to reflect on their own lives and make a change or two or three. . . . This is more than just a book about making and engineering: Make an excellent choice to add this to the shelves."—Kirkus Reviews
