Summary

Heroes with humor, courage, and character to inspire today's kids to greatness.In 51 American Heroes children will learn how ordinary people made courageous decisions that changed history forever. With bios, quotes, fun facts, famous firsts, places to go, and more, children will learn everything from the powerful to the outrageous. Whose children put a pony on the White House elevator? Who used a sunbonnet as a disguise to free hundreds of slaves? Who greeted White House guests wearing his pajamas?Unlike most history books for the children, this book is so much more than facts and dates. Each hero has a featured key word that describes an important part of their character. Then, in "Picture Yourself as Hero," the child is challenged to model that trait in their own lives. Not only that, but at the end of the book, they will discover that they are the fifty-first American hero and they too can change the world!
