Publisher's Summary

This book tells the stories of girls and boys from around the world and the challenges they have faced and overcome.

It features over 29 tales of amazing young girls and boys who have achieved the unimaginable - from surviving a plane crash in the jungle to striking against climate change. There are tales of triumphing over illness and injury, and of overcoming bullying. Entries include Greta Thunberg, Boyan Slat and Phiona Mutesi, to name a few.

Each incredible story is narrated in an exciting and engaging style. Children can lose themselves in the remarkable true-life tales of ingenuity, courage and commitment.

Practical tips and skills accompany every entry, from how to deal with altitude sickness to how to be more green. They provide children with an exciting springboard and the confidence to apply the knowledge to their own life situations - now and in the future.

A perfect gift for every fearless child you know, these empowering stories show that no matter who you are, how old you are, and what you do, you can rise to the challenge.

Inspired my 5 year old!

My Son was inspired by the stories in this book. I appreciate that the theme of hard work and determination was a theme throughout the book. Thank you!

my kids loved this

we listened to one story per short drive, and it worked amazingly.
ages 6 to 13.
the 4 yo didn't object either... some of the stories were a wee bit intense for the 6yo, but the subsequent discussion calmed him down.

This is a good book because…

It gives a lot of useful tips and are good if you want to know that every has a different story but should all be treated the same even if (WE) are a little weird!?!
