Stories For Kids Who Dare To Be Different: True Tales Of Amazing People Who Stood Up And Stood Out

Boys will be boys and girls will be girls? Not in this book.The follow-up to Ben Brooks's New York Times bestselling Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different, this book offers more extraordinary true stories of amazing people who broke the mold and changed the world for the better. The resulting message? Be yourself, and your dreams might come true.With the help of Quinton Winter's striking full-color illustrations, Brooks offers an accessible compilation of 76 famous and not-so-famous influencers from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and stereotype-smasher in his or her own way. Entries include Emma Gonzalez, Andy Warhol, Bjork, Hans Christian Andersen, Sally Ride, and so many more -- heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.From School Library JournalGr 3-5-This intriguing collection of nonfiction stories illuminates often-overlooked pioneers. Brooks, who previously introduced readers to historically unsung heroes in Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different, returns with new tales that span centuries, countries, ages, and genders. Listed in alphabetical order by name, each figure or group includes a detailed biography and full-page illustration by frequent collaborator Wintor. Although there are a few familiar faces, like astronaut Sally Ride and the Wright Brothers, the pages are packed with people that may be new to many readers such as Jessica Cox, a pilot born without arms, or Biddy Mason, a former enslaved woman who became the first black female landowner in Los Angeles. Brooks's collection invites readers to engage with people of many different ethnicities and cultures. A potential springboard for class research projects, the book's focus on lesser-known figures encourages readers to learn more. Brooks doesn't shy away from challenging topics; instead, age-appropriate information is carefully explained. Wintor's colorful illustrations capture the spirit of each figure, as well as the eyes of readers. VERDICT A strong selection for elementary and juvenile nonfiction collections that brings history to life.-Casey O'Leary, Mooresville Public Library, INAbout the AuthorBen Brooks is the author of several books, including Grow Up, Lolito, Hurra, and Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different.
