A beautiful and important book that features extinct and endangered animals and insects. I appreciated that it stated right in the beginning that there are no simple solutions to this problem. One can’t help but be moved to act- through direct involvement with organizations listed in the back or by changing some of our behaviors.
A fascinating look into inventions and patents.
Good nonfiction picture books are made even better when extensive research is done and verified. I like how credit was given to the first inventors of the earmuffs and talked about how Chester Greenwood became known as the primary inventor.
Ordinary People Change the World is a biographical picture book series from Brad Meltzer, best known as a bestselling author of adult thrillers. Positive and inspiring for preschoolers. Christopher Eliopoulos’ cute illustrations just add another layer of appeal!
Introducing young readers to these ordinary people who fought against stereotypes and/or injustice, the books have tackled various well-known people and their causes including Amelia Earhart’s determination to achieve her dream of being able to fly, Abraham Lincoln’s belief in equality for all, and Rosa Parks’s refusal to let others mistreat her and others just because of the color of her skin.
In this title, Einstein’s never ending curiosity as a child was a driving force in making him the hero he is today. I loved the humor of his awesome hair!
