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 Address.
This engaging series is the perfect way to bring American history to life for young children, and to inspire them to strive and dream.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Loved this book. Very good story showing how Abe Lincoln was a hero. Some interesting facts about Abe I had never heard before. Students at school from Kindergarten to 6th grade enjoyed the story. I hope this author continues to add to this series of books.
This book makes me smile, my five year old son absolutely loves it. We purchased it two weeks ago and the dust cover is already wearing on the edges. The storyline is overall a great life lesson for kids.
My six year old son is into pennies. He kept mentioning Abraham Lincoln after he asked who was the man on his coins. This book is perfection! Very relatable since the narrator is a young (child) Abe.
Great kids book
