"We can all be heroes" is the message of this picture-book biography series from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Brad Meltzer. oKids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it,o Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this friendly, fun approach to biography-for his own kids, and for yours. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a vivacious, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who aren'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, Lucille Ball could make any situation funny. By making people around the world laugh, she proved that humor can take on anything. 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.
