It is about children who have been an inspiration to do many people. I highly recommend this book." By Gracee on April 1, 2014 5.0 out of 5 stars Good book "It's such a good book! I wish there were some about the civil war. My favorite is probably the popcicle" By Amazon Customer on March 28, 2014 5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids & adults "This is a really quick read for adults, & not too hard for kids either. I originally got this book to help inspire my children to pursue their dreams now...not to wait until they were adults. I found it even inspiring for me! If these kids could do it, so can anyone! Don't be afraid to try, & more importantly, don't be afraid to try again! This spirit is being stomped out in our kids today. Traditional education wants to make our children cookie cutters. None of these kids were...they pursued their interests & amazing things worked out as a result. It's a great read!" By Jon February 9, 2014 4.0 out of 5 stars very interesting "I loved both stories about Lincoln. Very cute! I would recommend this book to any child that thinks "I am too little to make a difference." You never know what will happen until you try!" By Jessica on January 12, 2014 Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase 5.0 out of 5 stars Good Info "I like to read about history, trivia, and uplifting stories. This was all that and more. I would recommend it to parents and their kids. We all have something to contribute to this world, no matter our age." By Lola Gail on January 9, 2014
