Almost every problem has a solution. Sometimes the repair is right in front of your face, and you can do it without anyone’s help. Other times, well, another set of eyes or hands can help you find the right path, or a crisis can lead you to an “AHA!” Just remember: Almost every problem has a solution, and as you’ll see in Robin Stevenson’s “Kid Trailblazers,” illustrated by Alison Steinfeld, you don’t have to be an adult to find out.

Sometimes being a kid is frustrating. You may feel helpless, like you can’t do anything. So how do you feel when you know that some of the world’s biggest changemakers were once children, just like you?

Take Al Gore, the former vice president and leader in the fight against climate change, for example. When Gore was a boy, his parents fixed a place for him at dinner parties, so he could talk to and learn from important and influential adult guests during the meal.
