“Do you dream of a world where people are truly free and equal, where our planet is protected, and where everyone’s voice can be heard?”

Kid Trailblazers is a true treasure. From the way it is divided, to the “trailblazers” showcased throughout its pages and their easy-to-follow but meaningful biographies, and eye catching illustrations, I cannot wait to share this book with students and family alike.

In a world and climate, were all hope for true change lies within our children, Kid Trailblazers provides an opportunity to shed some light into amazing individuals and the big impacts they have made into society in different ways. Regardless of age, sex, color, your kiddos will find great role models to look up to within these pages. And who knows? Maybe they themselves will be the next trailblazers!

I cannot wait to read all the other books in the Kid Legends Series.
