The Difference Makers
An Unexpected Adventure
by Jeannie Lang

With the enthusiastic Mr. McKenzie as their guide, Emma, Aatif, Lily, Jack, and their classmates embark on an unforgettable adventure. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, the students dive into the magic of nature and witness the captivating lives and behaviours of countless animals in their natural habitat. However, they also uncover some strange and unwanted objects along the way and, unexpectedly, discover something remarkable about themselves. What will the students do with what they’ve discovered? You’re invited to join Mr. McKenzie’s class, where you can become an explorer, a naturalist, an inventor, and one of the Difference Makers.

Jeannie Lang has been inspired throughout her life by storytellers from diverse cultures and stories with different perspectives. They have helped shape her outlook on our interactions with one another and with the natural world around us. She feels privileged to write for children, being a passionate fan of their candid outlook on life, their creativity, and their intelligence, and to publish her first book for them. Her love of nature, and her connection with young minds, inspires her to create stories that she hopes will resonate with children everywhere. Her stories are about honouring their gifts, empowering them to be proud of who they are, and encouraging them to help shape the world around them.
