These accessible, appealing biographies chronicle successful and inspiring individuals from a wide variety of fields, introducing their life stories to readers who are most likely only somewhat familiar with their names, accomplishments, and professions. By learning about these individuals, readers will recognize that greatness can manifest itself in many different ways: through social reform, political action, technological feats, or works of art, music, and literature. Each figure achieved renown only after perseverance and hard work, which will inspire students to follow their lead. Interesting facts and vocabulary words are highlighted in each chapter.
