Just How Big Can a Little kid Dream?

Who is your hero?

Alexander takes a rip-roaring historical adventure! Through his imaginative journey, Alexander discovers how great men become heroes: the roughest rider can be surprisingly gentle, a strong leader is also the most peaceful, and sometimes, being brave about what makes you different will not only help you break records, but inspire others.

Join Alexander as he learns how these remarkable men changed the world and encouraged him to find the hero within himself.

"Clever text and exuberant illustrations makes this book a perfect way to introduce kids to historical figures."
-Deborah Underwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Quiet Book

"Good morning, Alexander," the father said. "It's time for breakfast, and then let's play ball."

"My name is not Alexander!" said the little boy.

"Then who has been sleeping in my son's bed?" asked the father.

"I am THEODORE, the greatest, grandest president who ever was!"

"Well, Theodore, PARK yourself here and SAVE your ENERGY for today's game."
