We can all be heroes. That's the inspiring message of this New York Times bestselling picture book biography series from historian and author Brad Meltzer. This volume focuses on Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets and Sesame Street. This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great--the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Jim Henson, for example, was always dreaming up something new, and always expressing his belief in the goodness of people. Henson was a born performer with a terrific sense of humor, and he used those talents to help create two of the most beloved programs in television history: The Muppet Show and Sesame Street. Through his Muppets, Jim showed the world that there's nothing more beautiful than imagination, especially when it's accompanied by laughter and kindness. Each book in this series tells the story of one inspiring individual through lively text and art that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Brad MeltzerPublisher: Dial BooksPublished: 01/10/2017ISBN: 9780525428503Pages: 40Weight: 0.60lbsSize: 7.60h x 7.40w x 0.50dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 11/15/2016School Library Journal 01/01/2017 pg. 112Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2017 pg. 231 - Recommended, SatisfactoryAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 187764 / I Am Jim HensonReading Level: 3.4 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
