In this Vook for the iPhone and iPod Touch, powerful videos tell the story of great heroes of recent history whose stories can inspire and give value to our lives today. The story began when author Brad Meltzer’s first son was born eight years ago and he started compiling a list of heroes whose virtues and talents he wanted to share with his son: Thomas Jefferson, Harriet Tubman, Jim Henson, The Wright Brothers, Nelson Mandela…and so many more, each one an ordinary person who was able to achieve the extraordinary. The list of amazing people continued to grow and is now gathered in "Heroes for My Son," a book that parents and their children – sons and daughters alike – can now enjoy together as they choose heroes of their own.
From the Wright Brothers, who brought extra building materials to every test flight, planning ahead for failure, to Jesse Owens, the African American track and field athlete who went up against Hitler’s Aryan elites to win four gold medals in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the "Heroes for My Son" vook, with ten inspiring videos, tells the behind-the-scenes stories of the moments that made them great.
