Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different: True Tales of Amazing People Who Stood Up and Stood Out
Boys don’t have to be boyish. Girls don’t have to be ladylike. Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different proves it. From Bjork to Luke Ambler, from Katie Sandwina to Savanna Karmue, these “stories” will change everybody’s lives. Bjork’s story is about being true to yourself—being who you are. Did you even know Chris Colfer performed in a TV show? He was Kurt Hummel. He was even in an episode where Kurt was made fun of for singing the song “Defying Gravity” from the Broadway musical, Wicked, which is usually sung as a duet by women. Jessica Cox always “dreamed of flying from a young age,” but guess what? She has no arms! Peter Jackson was actually born on Halloween—the same day Juliette Low, the Girl Scout founder was born (I am a Girl Scout). Robert Smith’s guitar teacher “thought he was terrible.” I myself sometimes think I’m terrible! So it is encouraging to read about someone else who has a similar challenge. Finally, Kesz Valdez found LOTS of things. Do any of these people relate to you in some way? Read the book for more examples! People ages six to eighteen who “dare to be different” will enjoy this book.
