This was great! It includes: Florence Nightingale Harriet Tubman Susan B. Anthony Mahatma Gandhi Martin Luther king Jr. John Muir. also a mini chapter on Rosa Parks. The person I loved was Harriet Tubman--a young, brave slave who helped others. She once got hit with a 2 pound iron weight in the head. Harriet didn't come-to for 2 days.

To be a hero it takes a big heart, a big soul, and the courage to help others.

In addition to facts, this book seeks to inspire readers to strive to become heroes themselves by following their own inner light, being brave, and never giving up.

Another fascinating fact filled edition in the Magic Tree House companion books. Mary Pope Osborne picked several of my own personal heroes plus added a new interest to my radar. Sadly, before reading this I didn't know much about Gandhi, I have already checked out additional reading material on this peaceful, simple man for further research for myself and my daughter. I wish we had been reading these wonderful companion books through our entire Magic Tree House ride, but we will slowly go back ...more

Read it with the children and we liked it. Good intro to some great heroes. Just enough info to keep it short and sweet but get good information and pique their interest for further research. We will check out more of the fact checker books.
