When Brad Meltzer's first son was born eight years ago, the
bestselling writer and new father started compiling a list
of heroes whose virtues and talents he wanted to share with
his son: Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, Jim Henson, Amelia
Earhart, Muhammad Ali . . . and so many more, each one an
ordinary person who was able to achieve the extraordinary.
The list grew to include the fifty-two amazing people now
gathered in Heroes for My Son, a book that parents
and their children—sons and daughters alike—can now enjoy
together as they choose heroes of their own.
the Wright Brothers, who brought extra building materials to
every test flight, planning ahead for failure, to Miep Gies,
who risked her life to protect Anne Frank and her family
from the Nazis during World War II, Heroes for My Son
brings well-known figures together with less famous ones,
telling the inspiring, behind-the-scenes stories of the
moment that made them great. They are a miraculous group
with one thing in common: each is an example of the
spectacular potential that can be found in all of us.
Heroes for My Son is an unforgettable book of
timeless wisdom, one that families everywhere can share
again and again.
