“The importance of speaking your truth echoes throughout this book. Don’t be afraid. Don’t hold back. Your voice is important and necessary. We all need to gather our strength and speak up, even if it’s hard to do. Beautiful.”

The world needs your voice. If you have a brilliant idea... say something! If you see an injustice... say something!

Perfect for kid activists everywhere, this timely story reminds readers of the undeniable importance and power of their voice. There are so many ways to tell the world who you are... what you are thinking... and what you believe. And how you'll make it better. The time is now: SAY SOMETHING!

About the Author
"In this new effort, Reynolds shows readers a variety of ways a voice can be used, listened to, and heard to make a difference... Reynolds' hand-lettered text, set in white text bubbles against a mix of bright backdrop colors and patterns, deftly works with before-and-after illustrations to show the change that children can effect. This book's encouragement to kids to find their voices can also be used to start a conversation about how they can make a difference in their world." -- Kirkus Reviews
