Top Customer Reviews
The books are beautifully illustrated and full of rich details. We know be common knowledge who these historical people are, but how did they reach their potential? What inspired them? What motivated them?
In a world of reality TV garbage and celebrity worship, there is a serious lack of role models in our media rich society. Meltzer wrote these books for his kids to demonstrate that there are some great role models that faced many advisories and obstacles and to achieve greatness. They demonstrate bravery, kindness and persistence of ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Their actions created historical significance that our children eventually learn about, but these books demonstrate how they did it and why they never gave up. They bring the significance of their lives to a level that young children can understand and inspire to become.
Beautiful illustrations compliment the narrative.
My kids love these books! They especially love Helen Keller, Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks and Amelia Earhart. Thanks to these books, these names aren't just a familiar school topic. They are a doorway for our kids to experience stories of inspiration and triumph of ordinary people who do extraordinary things.
