ABOUT THE BOOKS: A few years ago, #1 New York Times bestselling author and History Channel host Brad Meltzer was motivated by his own experience raising three children, to offer them a different kind of hero. He was tired of the princesses and reality stars that people looked up to, and knew from his love of history that there were incredible real world heroes that children would be fascinated by and look up to. The Ordinary People Change the World series was born.
A “child-sized view of history” (Detroit Free Press), Ordinary People Change the World launched in 2014 to rave reviews. Illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos, each book in the series is a biography of a real historical icon, told in a simple, conversational, and vivacious way, and puts “a fresh spin on famous Americans” (Entertainment Weekly). Meltzer, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, as well as a History Channel host, wanted children to see that real heroes – people like Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart or Rosa Parks – were real people capable of extraordinary things. Once children hear about these ordinary people who have changed the world, they react the same way we all do. They’re inspired. They dream bigger. They work harder.
