I Am Lucille Ball
by Brad Meltzer and Christopher Eliopoulos




Overview -
We can all be heroes is the message of this picture-book biography series from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Brad Meltzer.

"Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it," Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this friendly, fun approach to biography--for his own kids, and for yours. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a vivacious, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who aren't quite ready for the Who Was biography series. Each book focuses on a particular character trait that made that role model heroic. Lucille Ball could make any situation funny. By making people around the world laugh, she proved that humor can take on anything. She never changed how she behaved to seem proper, even when other people pressured her to. By remaining true to who she was, she made her mark in comedy and television--even becoming the first female CEO of a major Hollywood studio

This engaging series is the perfect way to bring American history to life for young children, providing them with the right role models, supplementing Common Core learning in the classroom, and best of all, inspiring them to strive and dream.
