    This collection of 35 biographical profiles introduces young readers to a diverse range of heroes who stood up against injustice. Sometimes, I found this book profoundly moving, but I cannot recommend it, because the author omitted and misrepresented facts in some of the chapters. Biog...

    I received a digital review copy through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. This brief, collected biography includes not only common, household names from history, but lesser-known people as well (a few I had not heard of before). While it's always nice to read about the ...

    This is a wonderful introduction to many historical figures and their contributions to society. The author chose a diverse group of people to highlight, with beautiful portraits of them before each chapter. At the end of each chapter, I wanted just a little bit more information about t...

    ?The books we read can change our lives?and the world? This book is probably one of my favorites. Just reading about all of these ?normal? people that grew up to be a part of something is so inspiring. This book will show you that despite your age, gender, religion, and n...

    It's always great to learn about these amazing and inspiring people again and again! ...

    I have never wanted to get a book removed from a library before, but because this book is supposed to be historical and is also geared for middle grades, and was also featured at my local branch, I?m actually concerned that it?s misinformation. How can you even talk about Black Liv...

    Grades 3-6 Biography This book includes powerful short biographies of some of the most inspiring people this Earth has known... from Joan of Arc, to Fredrick Douglas, to Lozan the Apache Warrior. Each of the bio's are paired with a quote, a moral, and a # if students want to connect ...

    What I appreciate most about this collection is its balance. It features the profiles of well-known historical figures such as Susan B. Anthony, Mohandas Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr., but also lesser-known figures such as Lozen the Apache Warrior, Chiune Sugihara, and Wangari Ma...

    While I did enjoy this book as an introduction to these people and I did find it inspiring, I wasn't a fan of how some of the profiles were written. A few had a "happy ever after" feel to them, and some just didn't seem to make a lot of sense as to why that person was resisting...like,...

    Inspiring book with a good choice of subjects. The forward by Cory Booker was excellent. Each profile provided just enough information to make the reader want to learn more. I really enjoyed the quotes at the end of each section, particularly Fannie Lou Hamer's p. 132 "Our vote is one ...

    Overall I was pretty pleased with this. Obviously it?s not overly in depth with every single person in the book. There are good sources listed at the end that can help. This was just a cool little book with resistance as the theme. Two things though. The 14th Dalai Lama was n...

    I thought that this book was really good. I really liked learning about many important people, and what they did. I liked how there were so many people and how each story was short. This was a great book that taught a lot of lessons. ...

    Brief, perhaps too brief, introductions to a variety of people known for resistance -- from Joan of Arc to Nelson Mandela to The Women's March. ...

    Very inspiring stories. I hope teen/tweens find their way to this book. ...

    While I did enjoy this book as an introduction to these people and I did find it inspiring, I wasn't a fan of how some of the profiles were written. A few had a "happy ever after" feel to them, and some just didn't seem to make a lot of sense as to why that person was resisting...like,...

    Inspiring book with a good choice of subjects. The forward by Cory Booker was excellent. Each profile provided just enough information to make the reader want to learn more. I really enjoyed the quotes at the end of each section, particularly Fannie Lou Hamer's p. 132 "Our vote is one ...

    Overall I was pretty pleased with this. Obviously it?s not overly in depth with every single person in the book. There are good sources listed at the end that can help. This was just a cool little book with resistance as the theme. Two things though. The 14th Dalai Lama was n...

    I thought that this book was really good. I really liked learning about many important people, and what they did. I liked how there were so many people and how each story was short. This was a great book that taught a lot of lessons. ...

    Brief, perhaps too brief, introductions to a variety of people known for resistance -- from Joan of Arc to Nelson Mandela to The Women's March. ...

    Very inspiring stories. I hope teen/tweens find their way to this book. ...

    Grades 3-6 Biography This book includes powerful short biographies of some of the most inspiring people this Earth has known... from Joan of Arc, to Fredrick Douglas, to Lozan the Apache Warrior. Each of the bio's are paired with a quote, a moral, and a # if students want to connect ...

    What I appreciate most about this collection is its balance. It features the profiles of well-known historical figures such as Susan B. Anthony, Mohandas Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr., but also lesser-known figures such as Lozen the Apache Warrior, Chiune Sugihara, and Wangari Ma...

    While I did enjoy this book as an introduction to these people and I did find it inspiring, I wasn't a fan of how some of the profiles were written. A few had a "happy ever after" feel to them, and some just didn't seem to make a lot of sense as to why that person was resisting...like,...

    Inspiring book with a good choice of subjects. The forward by Cory Booker was excellent. Each profile provided just enough information to make the reader want to learn more. I really enjoyed the quotes at the end of each section, particularly Fannie Lou Hamer's p. 132 "Our vote is one ...

    Overall I was pretty pleased with this. Obviously it?s not overly in depth with every single person in the book. There are good sources listed at the end that can help. This was just a cool little book with resistance as the theme. Two things though. The 14th Dalai Lama was n...

    I thought that this book was really good. I really liked learning about many important people, and what they did. I liked how there were so many people and how each story was short. This was a great book that taught a lot of lessons. ...

    Brief, perhaps too brief, introductions to a variety of people known for resistance -- from Joan of Arc to Nelson Mandela to The Women's March. ...

    Very inspiring stories. I hope teen/tweens find their way to this book. ...

    Inspirational! ...
