Gandhi For Kids: His Life and Ideas With 21 Activities (for kids series)

Written By: Ellen Mahoney

Publisher: Chicago Review Press (August 1, 2016)

Borrowed from the Chicago Library as a Cybils nominee

As with all the Chicago Review Press For Kids Series books, I think this is perfect for a teacher to use. I wouldn’t hand it to a kid and say- read it.

It’s perfect for a unit study and has relevant sections that would be great to read aloud. I loved the choices of hands-on activities too. Note: Some seemed like they wouldn’t work well in an at home setting.

It were an excellent autobiography for middle schoolers and included a lot of facts that I didn’t know. Gandhi pioneered vegetarianism and the concept of “reduce, reuse, recycle.” I think if you are studying India or world history in general, this would be a valuable addition.

The Kindle version has some weird formatting that takes some getting used to.

I recommend looking at the inside of the book feature on Amazon or check it out from your library.
