The Dream That Changed Everything

Alanna Brown received a package in June with two copies of "The Dream that Changed Everything." A charming book that was written, illustrated, and published by grade four students after participating in a Pennies for Peace lesson.

The book takes on the difficult topic of equal access to education for children around the world. Read this wonderful blog post to learn more.
