Biographies of inspirational role models are a critical resource for children. In the Famous Lives series we emphasize accessibility and thoroughness. These highly readable volumes trace each subject's early years, the events that shaped their beliefs and adult lives, and how they conducted themselves after winning recognition. It is the complete story, especially the formation of strong beliefs and goals in each person's early years, that provides the guidance and example children need. Each book exceeds 100 pages, making them ideal references as well as inspirational works.
