Last night I decided that I wanted to read more inspirational literature to my little girl. There are some really interesting and admiring people that I think are good to read about. When we were young, my mom kept stock of some biographies, and I enjoyed reading them when I was around 10 or so.
The Sower Series: This is the series of books that my mom had when we were children. I loved reading the early parts of the stories when the people were young, but when the characters got older, I got a little bored. However, I think the stories are very inspirational. I preferred the stories about girls and women, but I still read the boy’s stories.
The Lightkeepers Series: These books are shorter and less detailed. Each book has ten stories of boys or girls in it. The titles are something like “Ten boys Who Changed the World.” I haven’t read these yet, but I plan to. I think shorter stories are better for the younger audience with a shorter attention span.
The Young Patriots Series: These stories are not religious-focused, but they do tell the story of famous Americans who changed the country or world with their actions. Some of the people written about in this series are Amelia Earhart, Alexander Hamilton, John Hancock and Frederick Douglas.
