Stories for Kids Who Dare to be Different
Boys will be boys and girls will be girls - or so the meaningless saying goes. But what if you're a girl and you like cage fighting? Or you're a boy and you love ballet? And what if you've always dreamed of being a scientist but you can't see anyone who looks or sounds like you to follow? This is the book for children who want to know about the lives of those heroes who have led the way, changing the world for the better as they go.
Following the runaway success of Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, parents asked for a celebration of role models of both genders for children in the same book. Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different is the answer. These are the extraordinary stories of 100 famous, and not-so-famous, men and women, every single one of them an inspiring pioneer and creative genius in their own way, who broke the mould and made their dreams come true.
Like Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, this is a beautifully illustrated, evocative and inspirational book of the amazing stories of amazing people, that will delight sons and daughters, nephews and nieces, and give them the courage to be themselves.
