30 Courageous Visionaries Who Broke Boundaries, Made a Difference, and Paved the Way
by Bijan Bayne
How many of the people on this book’s cover can you or a young reader that you know identify? Whatever your answer, take a look inside this title to find thirty biographies filled with inspiration. Just some of those featured in this title are Sojourner Truth, Mahalia Jackson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah Winfrey Barack Obama and Kamala Harris. There were other people whose lives I learned about for the first time, for example, Ella Baker and Bessie Coleman.
Each entry features bold and appealing graphics. There is also a biography for each person.
This book will remind children that so much is possible and that, despite obstacles, there are many who have achieved great things.
This book deserves a spot in both home and school libraries. It is a wonderful and invitingly written resource.
Many thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for this title. All opinions are my own.
