I cannot speak more highly of Brad Meltzer's "I Am" series. As a former preschool teacher, these books are amazing at introducing heroes in a fantastic and age appropriate level. This book focuses on John Lewis, one of the pioneers in the civil rights movement. Stressing love and compassion in the face of violence, Lewis is a true American hero. The book does him justice in a way that children, and adults, can learn what can come from making "good trouble." Could not recommend more.
