Product Description

7 Children Who Changed the World!

What were Gates, Jobs, Disney, Einstein, Ford, Tesla, and Edison like as children?

What kind of childhoods, education, and families did they have? What led them to their outstanding accomplishments? Was it Intelligence? Fortitude? Confidence? Passion? Luck? All of the above? Or was it something else?

Enjoy these seven fascinating, but little-known stories. Follow each of these children through that brief period of life where life-long personalities are formed. Discover what turned them into world-changing icons of modern history; for example, what turned little Albert into “EINSTEIN” or young Thomas into “EDISON.”

Individually, these stories give surprising glimpses into the young lives of these incredible people. Taken together, these stories present a revealing overview of the characters, curiosities and passions that lead to greatness.

“Interesting book. There are a lot of traits these geniuses have in common. A good read for middle schoolers. This book will pique their interests to get more information.”
~ Amazon book reviewer

“This book is an interesting read for at least two reasons. First, it is a birds-eye view of the lives of seven unique geniuses presented from a different perspective, and second, it provides an introduction for children in elementary and middle school classrooms to learn about and research these intellectual giants.”
