The women and men in my book are heroes who impacted the history of our country and world. Some are well known and others less known. My idea was to offer brief poems with beautiful illustrations to children in an effort to encourage further reading experiences about heroes...these and other heroes. For each hero, I read several books : biographies, autobiographies and history books so I could learn about each person. Janice Hechter, the illustrator, studied the heroes from photographs and/or drawings at different times in their lives and included beautiful detail in the illustrations. For example: the illustration of Maria Tallchief has her tribal sign on the stage curtain and Mark Twain is reading "Rhymetime" !About the Author:
