We can all be heroes. That’s the inspiring message of this lively, collectible picture book biography series from New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer.
“Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in
it,” 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 an entertaining, conversational
way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who
aren’t quite ready for the Who Was series. Each book focuses on a
particular character trait that made that role model heroic. For
example, Abraham Lincoln always spoke up about fairness, and thus he led
the country to abolish slavery. This book follows him from childhood to
the presidency, including the Civil War and his legendary Gettysburg
Amelia Earhart refused to accept no for an answer; she
dared to do what no one had ever done before, and became the first woman
to fly a plane all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. This book follows
her from childhood to her first flying lessons and onward to her
multi-record-breaking career as a pilot.
This engaging series is the perfect way to bring
American history to life for young children, and to inspire them to
strive and dream.

April Sinclair just wants what any normal
thirteen-year-old would want: to disown her parents and obnoxious little
sisters; to escape to summer camp ASAP with her two best friends, Billy
and Brynn; and to make a good impression on Matt Parker, the hot new
boy next door.
Unfortunately, Matt witnesses April's utter
humiliation at her birthday party. Then Billy kisses her. Just as April
is trying to figure things out, her parents cancel her camp plans in
lieu of a family RV trip. A summer of babysitting her sisters and
""re-bonding"" with her family isn't how she imagined life as a
teenager. And it certainly won't help her straighten out her feelings
about Billy or Matt. Is there any silver lining to a road trip in The
Clunker with her family of misfits?
