Publisher Description:

Grit. Sticktuitiveness. Perseverance. Diligence. Whatever you call it, kids in today's uncertain world need it more that ever to overcome the inevitable challenges that life will throw their way. Introducing Grit: A Kid's Anthology! This bold, inspiring collection of stories introduces kids to real people who faced real problems and who pushed their way through. From inventors like Thomas Edison, who tried over 2,000 combinations to perfect the light bulb; to writers like J.K. Rowling, who faced poverty and was rejected a dozen times before someone published Harry Potter; to athletes like Jackie Robinson, who endured the taunts of racist adversaries; the heroes in Grit faced creative, physical, social, political, and nearly every other kind of challenge. Bold, mixed-media illustrations accompany each story in this vibrant, exciting anthology!
