This outstanding series of short, easy-to-read biographies and historical events is designed to acquaint children of all races with the accomplishments of extraordinary people. Famous and not-so-famous women and men are recognized for their achievements in education, politics, science, medicine, exploration, music, literature, and sports. Major historical events are also covered as young readers see how these events have helped shape society as we know it today.

History is highlighted by the brilliant achievements of children and teenagers -- from Michelangelo to Anne Frank to Tiger Woods. Covering both celebrities and high achievers in daily life, this biographical anthology includes some fifty young people notable in a variety of fields -- sports heroes, inventors, artists and musicians, writers, political and community activists, and young scientists.
