The Kid Legend Book Series

Two of my recent reads were from the Kid Legend Series by David Stabler and Robin Stevenson. This 7-book series focuses on a series of "greats" within the title topic and focuses on what these folks were like as kids who ultimately became champions in their fields. 

Best part of it, the recommendation for the book series came from one of my 3rd grade students in Technology when we were talking about Computer History and she recognized some of the names I mentioned based on having just read Kid Innovators.

Based on the nature of teaching technology and my investigation for curricular connections with a leadership unit ahead, I ordered Kid Activists: True Tales of Childhood from Champions of Change & Kid Innovators: True Tales of Childhood from Inventors and Trailblazers (both written by Robin Stevenson). Quick reads of course for an adult, but I found the stories fascinating as I learned the stories of the childhood of these activists and innovators. The two I read were excellent books for our young readers who enjoy biographies.

Other books in the series all by David Stabler that I'm sure are equally as good:

Kid Activists Image created at cover from; Individual pictures all taken the the activist's page except for Autumn Peltier, who's picture was from 

Kid Innovators Image created at Cover from;  Individual pictures all taken the the activist's page except for William Kamkwamba who's picture was from and the Wright Brothers, who's picture is from
