Grit. Sticktuitiveness. Perseverance. Diligence. Whatever you call it, kids in today's uncertain world need it more that ever to overcome the inevitable challenges that life will throw their way. Introducing Grit: A Kid's Anthology! This bold, inspiring collection of stories introduces kids to real people who faced real problems. From athletes like Jesse Owens, who faced racial prejudice; to entertainers like Ellen DeGeneres, who turned a difficult childhood into humor; to musicians like Ludwig van Beethoven, who wrote his best music even while losing his hearing; the heroes in Grit faced creative, physical, social, political, and nearly every other kind of challenge but paved an inspiring path as they pushed through. Bold, mixed-media illustrations accompany each story in this vibrant, exciting anthology!
