"We can all be heroes" is the message entertainingly told in
this picture-book biography series from #1 New York Times
Bestselling author Brad Meltzer.
â€śKids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a
say in it,â€ť Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this
friendly, fun approach to biography â€“ for his own kids, and
for yours. Each book tells the story of one of Americaâ€™s
icons in a vivacious, conversational way that works well for
the youngest nonfiction readers, those who arenâ€™t quite
ready for the Who Was biography series.
Each book focuses on a particular character trait that made
that role model heroic. For example, Rosa Parks dared to
stand up for herself and other African Americans by staying
seated, and as a result she helped end public bus
segregation and launch the countryâ€™s Civil Rights Movement.
This engaging series is the perfect way to bring American
history to life for young children, providing them with the
right role models, supplementing Common Core learning in the
classroom, and best of all, inspiring them to strive and dream.
