We can all be heroes is the message entertainingly told in this picture-book biography series from #1New York Times Bestselling author Brad Meltzer.
â€œKids always search for heroes so we might as well have a say in it â€ 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.
