A Great Children's Book Jan. 17 2011
By Christine Zeiler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had this book sent to me before sending it to my granddaughter. I wanted to preview it myself first. It is a wonderful book about fulfilling your dreams. It is great for any age. It is very inspirational and will no only be in my granddaughter's library but I bought one for mine as well.

A Great Beginning Aug. 4 2011
By E. Kennen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
GIANT STEPS TO CHANGE THE WORLD a picture book about having the courage to face adversity and forge your own path to make the world a better place.

This sparsely written and evocatively illustrated book pays homage to a diverse set of exemplars like Albert Einstein, Mother Teresa, Harriet Tubman, and Mohammed Ali. While it is probably a fantastic book for the right audience, do keep in mind that a) it has very complex vocabulary for kids (such as "even though he had been relegated to second-class status by the very country he was representing") and b) it is full of unexplained historical references.

This book would probably be an intriguing jumping off point for a class or homeschool project; however, most kids will not be able to take full advantage of it as a stand-alone tale.

Great read. April 2 2011

My grandchildren, ages 5,4,2, enjoyed the stories. They were too young to make the associations with the names yet but are learning to guess the occupations from the clues. I loved it!

I gave this as a graduation present to a high school senior. It was perfect for her. The endpapers are covered with inspirational quotes so I added my own. :-)
I am glad I bought it. Oct. 29 2013

Format: Hardcover
It is not my favorite book, but it is a good addition in my classroom library.
It is not a "must have" book.
