Product description

A companion volume to "Fifty Famous Stories Retold" by James Baldwin, "Fifty Famous People" introduces children to a variety of men who performed their parts in the great drama of the world's history. Included are anecdotes about great American statesmen, such as Lincoln and Franklin, as well as kings of long ago-Cyrus the Great, King Alfred, and Robert Bruce, boys who became famous as poets-Longfellow and Caedmon, and others who excelled in the art of painting-Giotto and Benjamin West. Other stories depict orators, scholars, inventors, slaves, and soldiers. Regardless of their fields of endeavour, all the characters portrayed show qualities that make them worthy of being remembered and looked up to as models of behavior. Young children will enjoy hearing these stories read to them, while older ones will take pleasure in reading them to themselves.
