Creative Courage for Young Hearts: 15 Emboldening Picture Books Celebrating the Lives of Great Artists, Writers, and Scientists
NOTE: This article is too long for email and has been truncated – you can read it in full on the site.
Collected here are thirteen wonderful picture-books celebrating such worthwhile "spiritual and mental ancestors." It is, of course, an incomplete reading list, yet it is a deliberate one – a great many such books exist, but few feature the trifecta of wonderfulness: a cultural icon notable for his or her lasting contribution to humanity beyond mere fame; an intelligent and nuanced life-story lovingly told; and beautiful, imaginative illustrations rewarding in their own right. Please enjoy.
