"The stories and achievements of 50 amazing people--all of whom began their journeys as children--are brought together in this collection. Kids who were born with unique talents, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Clara Schumann, are joined by courageous youth, such as Anne Frank and Ruby Bridges, and by hardworking young scientists and athletes, such as Akrit Jaswal (the youngest person to perform surgery in modern history) and Pele, considered by many to be the best soccer player in the world. Many included, such as Thandiwe Chama and Om Prakash Gurjar, have overcome great obstacles and have become advocates for children, literacy, and equality. Each full-page biography is accompanied by a bold, full-page color portrait, which gives further insight into their passion, and the seamlessly flowing text makes this both an interesting and fast read. Young readers are sure to find inspiration as they read about unique children from all over the world who were able to change the world around them and be encouraged to follow their dreams and fight for what is right." --Booklist
