Weezer Change the World by David McPhail
We’re so excited to share with the our selection for the David McPhail Virtual Book Club for Kids. We’ve selected the children’s book called Weezer Changes the World!
It’s a book about a very special dog who was very ordinary until one day something extraordinary happens and the world is never the same afterward.

Weezer Changes the World by David M. McPhail
If you haven’t read the story, here is Reese Witherspoon reading it at the Whitehouse.
In the book the people promise to Make Cards, Letters to Others, Feed the Hungry, Care for the Sick, Keep Air Clean and Keep Water Clean, and Be Kind to Others.
All simple ways that we can change the world for a better place.
Weezer Changes the World Book Extension Using Random Acts of Kindness
What promises would you make to Weezer?
We created our own Earth by using Watercolors. Then we came up with ways that we can change the world personally.
Our hope is to add more and more as the month goes by.
Here’s a printable worksheet to write your goals on.
Once we created the goals we typed them up together on the computer and then attached them to clouds as dreams. We were talking about Martin Luther King Jr, here are a few other activities about him.
We talked about his dream too and the way that we treat others.
We decided to discuss various Random Acts of Kindness that we could share with others.
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday today.
Everyone is invited to join in this kindness celebration! We can all do small things to make our homes, families, communities, schools, and workplaces just a little bit better.
So, will you join us?

Children’s Books by David McPhail
Now here’s the fun part. David McPhail has inspired so many with his books. It’s your turn to share what you and your child created with these books.
Great post!! Love the way that you tied into the kindness project! I LOVE all of the ideas of random acts of kindness that could be shared. Tomorrow I am dropping of treats for some of the teenagers at church to wish them good luck on their finals. It is so fun to see their smiles when we pop by with a surprise. I am looking forward to finding more ways that my kids can do kind things for their friends this week!
Sounds like such a lovely book! How fun that Reese Witherspoon is reading it and I love how there is someone who is signing it as well!

What a great idea!
Raising a Happy Child says
This book and all the activities you tied it to looks amazing! I like the sound of the kindness project, but I am just way-way too buried at work to really take part. Maybe we'll do something more manageable here.
How exciting! What a wonderful way to make my Kindergarteners aware of how powerful they are!
