Product Description


This title is a perfect motivational tool for young men. It hits home about how you can do what you dream even at an early age if you work hard.
Barbara Allen, VOYA August 2012

"In an appealing, conversational style, McCann presents minibiographies of boys from all over the world, from ancient to contemporary, who prove that youth need not be a barrier to "rocking the world." (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I loved these stories to read to the class. Nice touch with how other young people "rocked the world". They were very inspirational and appealing to my students.

HASH(0xa460cd8c) out of 5 stars Enjoyable book Sept. 23 2013
By Marla - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book. I never liked history growing up and it might have been partly because my teachers were so boring and made history boring. But I really enjoyed this book. I learned things about these select men I had no clue. It was great to see such a wide variety of men with so many different backgrounds. While reading this book in the car one night, I found myself reading it out loud to my husband. I didn't know Stevie Wonder lost his eyesight as an newborn due to oxygen being pumped into his incubator. I didn't know King Tut became Pharaoh at the age of 9. This is worth the read.

Great book!! My 8 year old loves it, and I love that it has sparked his interest in how any boy at any age can do something important for this world. I highly recommend this book for any young boy.

HASH(0xa3e40768) out of 5 stars Great book for kids July 13 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 6 year old loves this book, will pick it up and read it frequently, commenting on things the different people did. I just ordered the Girls one for my niece. Very kid friendly. Easy to read with little "fun fact" boxes here and illustrations.
Would recommend for boys AND girls to read. Fun way to introduce history characters

HASH(0xa3d55abc) out of 5 stars This book is great for my 8 year old son Oct. 31 2015

This book is great for my 8 year old son. He is an advanced reader, and reads this easily. The stories are so inspiring and it provides such great role models for boys getting to that age where they are defining who they are. I love that there are so many different types of personalities that all kids will be able to relate to one or more. And it provides history lessons at the same time!
