I Am Gandhi
This book tells the story of how Gandhi used the principles of nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience to fight discrimination against Indians in South Africa and to end British rule in India. Gandhi's story focuses on his peaceful heroism in the struggle for civil rights and social change.
Each picture book in the Ordinary People Change the World series is a biography of a significant historical figure, told in a simple, conversational, vivacious way, and always focusing on a character trait that makes the person a role model for kids. The heroes are depicted as children throughout, telling their life stories in first-person present tense, which keeps the books playful and accessible to young children. And each book ends with a line of encouragement, a direct quote, photos, a timeline and a source list.
