Praise

Praise for They Did What? 50 Impressive Kids and Their Amazing (and True!) Stories

“Why should grown-ups get all the historical, scientific, athletic, cinematic, and artistic glory? Choosing exemplars from both past and present, Mitchell includes but goes well beyond Alexander the Great, Anne Frank, and like usual suspects to introduce a host of lesser-known luminaries . . . for readers whose fires need lighting, there’s motivational kindling on nearly every page. A breezy, bustling bucketful of courageous acts and eye-popping feats.”–Kirkus Reviews

“This impressively broad and engaging collection of brief biographies ranges thousands of years of human history, around the world, and across a variety of disciplines that include intellectual and athletic achievements . . . Accompanied by Petrus’ appealing sketched portraits, the profiles of the individuals featured contain enough background information—family, social class, disability, or extraordinary talent, for instance—to make the achievements sensible as well as relevant to contemporary readers.”–Booklist
