Synopsis

50 Impressive Kids and Their Amazing (And True!) Stories by Saundra Mitchell

A collection of biographies of some of the most influential, important, and intrepid figures in history and today. This title covers a wide range of amazing and diverse kids. From such recognisable names as Venus Williams, Beethoven, and Pocahontas, to some you may not know, like Gabrielle Turnquist, the eighteen-year-old lawyer from Britain, or Lydia Ko, who became a professional golfer at the age of sixteen. To help engage reluctant readers, bonus content including activities, factoids, quizzes, and a glossary will make for an enhanced reading experience, and provide excellent ancillary materials for classrooms.

About the Author

Saundra Mitchell is absolutely, completely, totally crazy about history. If you come to her hometown of Indianapolis, she'll show you the streets named after 19th century trolley stops, where Civil War prisoners were kept, and where the first European cemetery in town used to be. (That's right, they moved it! How creepy is that?) When she's not geeking out about history, she's writing novels for young adults, flipping out about pop culture with her best friend, and seriously embarrassing her kids. Find out more about her at www.saundramitchell.com and follow her on Twitter @SaundraMitchell.
