Did you know that a 13-year old boy saved seventeen lives during Hurricane Harvey?


Do you realize that a third grade girl sewed over a hundred blankets for people who needed them?


Have you heard of the teen who invented a flashlight powered by human body heat? She was helping a friend who had no electricity. Did you know that a five your old kid led a group of toddlers to safety after Hurricane Katrina? Young people are doing amazing things all the time. Instead of thinking they need to wait until they’re older, they’re jumping into action now, as if to say: “I can’t wait!”.


This book is loaded with fascinating stories of kids—just like your child—who didn’t wait for someone else to solve problems or serve people. These kids, ages 5 to 24, showed the rest of the world what can be done by youth who catch a vision. These stories are designed to spark conversations between family members, teachers and students, coaches and athletes and youth leaders and kids.


After each story there are discussion questions and a link to watch a video on the person you just read about. Every kid has said at some point: “I can’t wait!” Now, read some stories of kids who said that and then changed their world.
