A group of children have produced a book of tips on how to improve the world, which include teaching grandparents to text. The book, 'Teach Your Granny to Text & Other Ways to Change the World', has been written by kids for kids
The book was compiled by We Are What We Do, a social change group, after thousands of young people sent in suggestions in response to a competition, reports Telegraph. They were asked to come up with a simple action that, if done by a million people, would change the world.
The book's foreword says: "Our job is to bring people together and demonstrate how, using simple, everyday actions, we can create a global movement of doing and changing; doing small actions and changing big problems."
It tells children: "You have a super power. It's not as whizzy as X-ray vision or flying. In fact as super powers go it's pretty ordinary. But if you use it you can change things. Big things like global warming, bullying, animal rights and why people don't smile any more."
The book has a strong environmental message, advising that people should wear a jumper to tackle global warming. It also says: "Don't sing in the shower. The average shower lasts seven minutes and uses 35 litres of water. Actually two minutes is all it takes.
"If everyone in your class took two-minute showers for a year, with the water saved you could fill an entire swimming pool."
Other tips include: give lots of compliments, don't charge your phone overnight, read with a pal, look more closely at things and find out about your food.
The book will be sent to every public school in England; the hope is that it will spark conversation and, of course, change.
