Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Warming Story about never giving up. This series of books is perfect. Great message to kids that working hard, learning from mistakes and never giving up will get you far in life. And you can do all of this with criticism from others, and just simply believing in yourself and the goals you have set forth for yourself. These actually bring a bit of emotion to this mommy, and they are great conversation starters during and after reading. There's also a little bit of humour thrown into the stories which make it a silly important read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Kids My 7 and 5.5 year olds LOVE this series. The stories are interactive (this one has actual braille for them to feel), and the pictures are super cute and engaging. This series has opened up a LOT of conversations about important historical figures, doing what is right, and how we can make the world a better place for all living beings.
