    Right Now!: Real Kids Speaking Up for Change is a children's picture book written by Miranda Paul and illustrated by Brittany Jackson. It is a collection of eleven tributes written in simple language to children innovators that did not wait to be adults to make change. The text is rather simplistic, straightforward, and informative.

It is a collection of eleven tributes written in simple language to children innovators that did not wait to be adults to make change. The text is rather simplistic, straightforward, and informative. It is a collection of eleven young tributes from across the world and from diverse nationalities with a double page spread per person with little factoids sparse throughout the page. Backmatter includes an author's note, action to make a difference, and additional resources. Paul's soft-focus portrait emulates the subjects rather well with detail backgrounds. The premise of the book is rather straightforward. This anthology of biographical tributes was written wonderfully with much information sparse between the pages without making it feel too heavy and cover subjects like climate change, homelessness, immigration, racism, sexism, education, LGBTQ rights, and overall equality. The eleven young tribuites mentioned are: Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai, Robby Novak, Jonas Corona, Jazz Jennings, Sophie Cruz, Jaylen Arnold, Zulaikha Patel, Angela Zhang, Bana Alabed, and Sophie Cruz. All in all, Right Now!: Real Kids Speaking Up for Change is a wonderful collection of young activists that didn't wait until being adults to change the world.

    I love that it starts out by asking "what do you want to do right now?" Spotlights kid activists. I love that it starts out by asking "what do you want to do right now?" Spotlights kid activists.
