“Each picture book in this series is a biography of a significant historical figure, told in a simple, conversational, vivacious way, and always focusing on a character trait that made the person heroic. The heros are depicted as children throughout, telling their life stories in first-person present tense, which keeps the books playful and accessible to young children. And each book ends with a line of encouragement, a direct quote, and photos on the last page. This story focuses on Rosa Parks and how she always stood up for what’s right.
This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.
Included in each book are:
A timeline of key events in the hero’s history
Photos that bring the story more fully to life
Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorable
Childhood moments that influenced the hero
Facts that make great conversation-starters
A virtue this person embodies: Rosa Parks’s strength is highlighted in this biography. You’ll want to collect each book in this dynamic, informative series!”
