Book Review - Real Lives: Incredible Successes: Inspiring People Who Overcame Adversity

Real Lives: Incredible Successes: Inspiring People Who Overcame Adversity

About the Book
Young readers will be inspired by these stories of remarkable individuals who changed history and continue to impact our world.

Each entry in Real Lives series of books explores how these courageous and determined individuals managed to change the world for the better. In Incredible Successes, children will find the stories of people who experienced amazing success despite overwhelming obstacles. Includes J.K. Rowling, Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney, Serena and Venus Williams, Ludwig van Beethoven, Nelson Mandela, Thomas Alva Edison, Vincent van Gogh, and others.

These remarkable people came from all four corners of the globe, from all walks of life, and across many different disciplines. There are men and women, musicians and scientists, activists and leaders, athletes and actors, and more. Bold color schemes and a stylized photograph or illustration of the subject make these books hard to resist. Children will be drawn to these visually appealing books and find the stories inside of them fascinating and thought-provoking.

My Take on the Book
You and your child will thoroughly enjoy reading this book, and you will learn new facts about people you know and those you do not know. The book contains 25+ short biographies of people throughout the world who have made a difference in others lives. The biographies are accompanied by a picture of the person. The people highlighted in this book have accomplished a goal or task because of their dedication, passion, courage, and talent.

Here are some of the names of people you will read about: Harry S. Truman, Nelson Mandela, Stephen Hawking, Walt Disney, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael J. Fox.

I will give you a short version of two individuals. James Dyson was the inventor responsible for creating the Dyson Vacuum Cleaner. He lived in the UK and no manufacturer would support his invention. It was not until he created his own company and manufactured his vacuum cleaner himself, that he became known world wide. He has continued to create new inventions.

J. K. Rowling is the famous author of the Harry Potter books. Before she became famous, she was a mother raising her young baby. She was on welfare and had little money.As she tried to publish her first book, she was receiving many rejection letters. However she has become one of the most well known authors today. Her books have broken book sales. 

These are just two of the individuals who persevered in face of adversity. Their amazing successes could spur your child into believing he/she can be acknowledged for their talents too.
