#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer brings together a remarkable group of heroes with one thing in common: they were ordinary people who became extraordinary.

Brad was inspired by the birth of his daughter to curate this collection, but you don't need to be a parent to treasure it--Heroes for My Daughter is perfect for children, parents, teachers, and anyone looking for inspiration. The sixty featured figures represent the spectacular potential we all have within us to change the world. The format allows for reading straight through or at your own pace, and includes photos, quotes, brief biographies, and vignettes that highlight the single moment that made each person great. The wonderfully diverse heroes included in the book are women, men, historical, contemporary, athletes, actors, inventors, politicians, and so many more. Heroes for My Daughter is a book to be read again and again, as the simple question of what makes a hero remains a vital part of today's conversation.

A sequel of sorts to Heroes for My Son, this book offers a slightly different selection of heroes. Again, Meltzer knows his audience. Each hero gets a two page biographical spread.

As mentioned above, there is some repetition from the previous book, but for the most part this is a new slate of heroes. Meltzer also doesn‘t fall into the trap of offering only female heroes to his daughter.

Again, this is a wonderful starting off point for parents and teachers in a discussion of what makes a hero.
