Worthy mission: Brad Meltzer devised this series as a way to give today’s kids the right role models and to encourage them to live heroically. “Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it.”
Expanding the series: The Ordinary People Change the World books are already a New York Times bestselling series, and now kids will be able to connect with it at an even younger age. The short, inspiring text encourages the young readers while teaching them some basic facts about the heroes’ lives.
Interactive element: Each of the board books includes an interactive element designed for the youngest readers. This one features a count-the-animals activity.
One of our most popular heroes: Abraham Lincoln was one of the first two heroes in the series, and his book has consistently been a favorite. His story of speaking up for fairness will inspire young readers to fight for what’s right.
