When we talked to her in September 2015, she told us she was inspired to write this book because she was inspired by a book when she was younger:

She remembers reading “50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth,” when she was in elementary school. She became part of creating that school’s recycling program. She also would cut the plastic rings around soda cans and glue them onto cardboard. Then she would had out the cardboard to her friends, neighbors and grandparent’s neighbors to encourage them to cut the rings to protect birds from choking.

“I hope ‘It’s Your World’ impacts one kid the same way ’50 Simple Things’ impacted me,” she says. …

Rather than telling kids what they should be passionate about, she’s a big believer in adults asking kids what moves them. Some kids will read the whole book and then decide what they want to do, she says. Other kids, might just read the portion that they care about. She sees the book as helping them have information to be informed.

For her own daughter, she says, “I hope that Charlotte feels a responsibility to help make an impact on whatever she cares about. As a mom, I can help her find her way.”
