9780061905285: Heroes for My Son

When Brad Meltzer, "New York" Times bestselling author of "The Book of Fate" and "The Tenth Justice", welcomed his first child into the world, he started keeping a list of heroes whose virtues and talents he wanted his son to share when he grew up. "Heroes for My Son" is a collection of 54 extraordinary men and women, some celebrated across the globe and some lesser-known, but each in their own right a hero. Packaged in a charming gift format, the book will include short vignettes, quotations, and black and white photos of each hero. In the style of "Life's Little Instruction Book", "Heroes for My Son" highlights a diverse set of role models for many coming generations to learn from and admire. Among the heroes include: The Wright Brothers, Team Hoyt, Mr. Rogers, Miep Gies, Roberto Clemente, Amelia Earhart, Harry Houdini, Jackie Robinson, Albert Einstein, Dr. Seuss, George H.W. Bush, Charlie Chaplin, Pele, Muhammad Ali, Barack Obama, Harper Lee, Rosa Parks, Lou Gehrig, Ben Rubin (Brad Meltzer's Grandfather), and many more.

From the Back Cover:

When Brad Meltzer's first son was born eight years ago, the bestselling writer and new father started compiling a list of heroes whose virtues and talents he wanted to share with his son: Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, Jim Henson, Amelia Earhart, Muhammad Ali . . . and so many more, each one an ordinary person who was able to achieve the extraordinary. The list grew to include the fifty-two amazing people now gathered in Heroes for My Son, a book that parents and their children--sons and daughters alike--can now enjoy together as they choose heroes of their own.

From the Wright Brothers, who brought extra building materials to every test flight, planning ahead for failure, to Miep Gies, who risked her life to protect Anne Frank and her family from the Nazis during World War II, Heroes for My Son brings well-known figures together with less famous ones, telling the inspiring, behind-the-scenes stories of the moment that made them great. They are a miraculous group with one thing in common: each is an example of the spectacular potential that can be found in all of us.

Heroes for My Son is an unforgettable book of timeless wisdom, one that families everywhere can share again and again.
