Recognizing that children 9 to 12 are at a formative age where they need heroes, this set of ten biographies highlights important scientists (Albert Einstein, Jane Goodall, Katherine Johnson) as well as figures who have provided political or social inspiration (Anne Frank, Nelson Mandela, Alexander Hamilton, Helen Keller, M.K. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Florence Nightingale). Each of these profusely illustrated books includes a glossary, a quiz, a family tree, and an illustrated timeline, while the slipcased set contains a poster that invites readers to write about what they have learned and ten bookmarks corresponding to the individual biographies.
