Some of the greatest minds in history have struggled with some all-too-familiar problems: Albert Einstein’s father nicknamed his young son “the dopey one.” Isaac Newton’s family insisted that he needed to become a farmer, not a scientist. When Charles Darwin’s father sent his son off to medical school, Darwin got in trouble for leaving his books behind as he went out and studied nature.
Like too many kids today, these and other famous people struggled with disappointments, distractions, and disasters. But to read their stories is to become inspired at what they accomplished against all odds.
The Road To Greatness tells these stories for kids in the primary grades: how Beethoven survived a childhood of neglect to become a great composer. How Thomas Edison overcame his deafness to become a great inventor. How Abraham Lincoln rose out of poverty to become the greatest president his country has ever known. And every one of dozens of stories aims to show kids how they, too, can find something they love and use their passion to propel them past all obstacles into the life of their dreams.
The Road To Greatness is the perfect addition to any home library or primary-grade classroom. Its fact-filled narratives will inspire and educate, presenting biographies for figures from William Shakespeare to Nikola Tesla, from Aristotle to Alexander Graham Bell. Parents reading aloud to their kids will find themselves stopping for deep discussions about life challenges and how to overcome them. Teachers can use The Road To Greatness as an invaluable supplement to science and technology units and character education curricula.
Contains fun activities: Slider Puzzle, Memory Game, Word Search and a “Test your knowledge” section with three levels of difficulty.
