Take your children on an adventure to meet 10 famous authors The book introduces young readers to great works of literature. By celebrating a diverse group of voices like Langston Hughes, Taha Hussein, and Virginia Woolf, the book paves the way for a lifetime of appreciating classic books. Includes parent/educator guide and activity page.

Young readers will climb the hilly streets of Sui Sin Far's San Francisco, board a plane to Taha Hussein's Egyptian village, and chase a cocker spaniel through the streets of Virginia Woolf's London. They will search the seas for Herman Melville's white whale, dance to the blues in Langston Hughes's Harlem, and ride a horse-drawn carriage through Edith Wharton's Central Park. They'll listen to a woodpecker in Emily Dickinson's poetry, and hike in Walden Woods with Thoreau. Along the way, Zitk la-Sa tells the story of a talented girl who leaves her reservation to start a new school, Mar a Amparo Ruiz de Burton describes a brave young woman who travels across the country in a covered wagon, and Hussein introduces us to a boy who refuses to let his blindness stop him.

The book includes a "Become An Author" activity page for children and a bonus section for parents and educators with background information for each author as well as suggested topics to spark discussion with children, and a link to the author's website for ongoing resources and activities.
