HASH(0x9912f81c) out of 5 stars A Great Children's Book Jan. 17 2011
By Christine Zeiler - Published on
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.

HASH(0x98c72cfc) out of 5 stars A Great Beginning Aug. 4 2011
By E. Kennen - Published on
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he had been relegated to second-class status by the very country he was representing") and b) it is full of unexplained historical references.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.

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. :-)
