"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. For example, Lucille Ball could make any situation funny. By making people around the world laugh, she proved that humor can take on anything.

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.


I am Lucille Ball is a must read for all girls and boys!   We follow Lucy as she grows from a “wild, unruly” child to an adult TV star that was able to call her own shots.  Lucy was discouraged by important people in her life but it was the encouragement of one person in her life that gave her the boost she needed. She gathered the bravado to believe in herself. When she believed in herself all of her dreams came true.  This story is one of courage, faith and determination, sending the message to our kids to never give up on their dreams.


I had never heard of Lucille Ball, her book was very encouraging to me when I read it.  I want to be a writer and reading how she believed in herself even when her family didn’t believe in her made me see how lucky I am that my mom and dad believe in me.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes funny people and people who need to have inspiration.
