Pay it Forward: the Young Reader’s edition by Catherine Ryan Hyde
When your teacher gives you an assignment to change the world for the better, it can be difficult to imagine how one person can make a difference. But Trevor McKinney, a small boy in California, comes up with an idea that could work. Do a favor for someone, a really big one, and instead of asking them to pay it back, ask them to pay it forward to three other people. Trevor starts to put his plan into action. It doesn’t seem to be working, until one day, unexplained reports of kindness start to pop up everywhere. And no one can explain how it started. Read the book to read more about Trevor and his ambition to make the world a better place.
I absolutely loved this book! It was such a heart-warming, lift-you-up book that I could not put down. I love how Trevor, Arlene and Mr. St. Claire went through many trials together and came out victorious. Not everyone was supportive of Trevor’s movement. In fact, many kids scoffed at the idea. This goes to show that if you believe in something with all your heart, your dreams could come true. The Pay it Forward Foundation is real, founded by the author of this book, Catherine. The foundation inspires extraordinary random acts of kindness throughout the world each day. Use the link belwo to learn more about their cause.
Recommended Reading Age
I would recommend this book for ages 12 and up because of the overall concept. While light, the concept would need a more mature mind to create an impact in. I do believe that, like in the book, these acts of kindness could some day be a regular occurrence.
Pay it Forward is a inspiring book that makes you laugh, cry and smile all at the same time. I loved this book because of the determination of the characters, who all wanted to succeed in life badly.
