I Can Change Everything

Written by Stephanie Taylor
Illustrated by Laura Brenlla

“I love this adorable, colorful rallying cry for future activists. As the book counsels, you can’t change your big heart, but lots of the rest of our world is ours for the shaping.”
— Anna Galland, Executive Director, MoveOn Civic Action and mother of three

“Understanding our power as humans to change the world for the better is the single greatest gift I could give my kids, which makes this our new favorite bedtime book. I’m grateful to Stephanie Taylor for writing a book that captures the optimism and opportunity that should be at the heart of all of individual and collective efforts to effect change.”
— Shaunna Thomas, co-founder and executive director of UltraViolet

Using their imaginations, kids can make a better world!

Stephanie Taylor’s first picture book, I Can Change Everything, empowers young children to use imagination to change their circumstances – both the fun parts of life, like playing dress-up or observing nature, and the not-so-fun parts of life, like saying goodbye to a close friend. Hopeful and inspiring, I Can Change Everything reassures children that the world can be made into a better place – exactly how they want it to be.

Stephanie Taylor is an activist and writer. She once worked as a union organizer in Appalachia. Now she’s the co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), a million-member grassroots advocacy organization, where she leads a team that has supported over a thousand candidates running for public office. She’s the mother of three girls, all under the age of three. For more information, visit her website.
