#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer brings together a remarkable group of heroes with one thing in common: they were ordinary people who became extraordinary.
We all have people we look up to and I’d rather my daughters look up to people that accomplish things in their lives and do things that are good for humanity and not for the glory. Enter Brad Meltzer, the New York Times bestselling author, who created a book about heroes for his own daughter. A beautiful, kid-friendly repackage of Brad Meltzer’s inspiring, educational, photographic nonfiction book, to shelve next to his bestselling I AM… picture book series. Some heroes include: Marie Curie, Sojourner Truth, Anne Frank, Mahatma Gandhi, Lucille Ball, Abraham Lincoln, Billie Jean King, and Rosa Parks.
Brad was inspired by the birth of his daughter to curate this collection, but you don’t need to be a parent to treasure it—Heroes for My Daughter is perfect for children, parents, teachers, and anyone looking for inspiration. The book includes sixty featured figures that represent spectacular potential that we all have within us to change the world. The reading is straight forward and includes beautiful photographs, quotes, brief biographies, and vignettes that highlight the single moment that made each person great. It is a wonderfully diverse line-up of heroes that include women, men, historical, contemporary, athletes, actors, inventors, politicians, and so many more. Heroes for My Daughter is a book to be read again and again, as the simple question of what makes a hero remains a vital part of today’s conversation. This is a must read for all parents with daughters!
