How would you solve the problem of poverty? What can be done to improve our educational system, and to motivate our children to learn? How would you make homelessness non-existent? How do you fix everything that's wrong in the world? Have you thought about asking elementary school students these questions? S. Denice Newton has, and she was astonished at the answers of her young interviewees: eloquent, insightful, and in some cases, more realistic than what you'd expect even from an adult. Cubs Rising features 50 elementary school students talking about how they see the world today, and how they would solve the most important issues. Their point of view will inevitably make you smile or even laugh out loud; sometimes, you may feel like crying while reading their answers. More than anything else, you will feel compelled to think, because these young cubs, who are still rising up in the world to take their place one day, definitely see more and understand more than anyone would expect from someone their age. Clever, thoughtful, and sometimes sassy, they have a lot to say and a lot to offer while they're learning what their dreams are and how to make them happen. Meet our emerging leaders, and learn from them.
