5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Book Nov. 21 2004
By Virginia Allain - Published on Amazon.com
I'm looking forward to reading this book after seeing what it inspired locally. A local woman set up a project after reading this book. The project, called Give-A-Kid-A-Backpack, collects gently used backpacks and supplies to fill them, then gives them to needy children in Ecuador.

Any book that can get that kind of activism going must be remarkable.
