Overview

Twenty-one entertaining, thought-provoking poems chronicle the good that people have done in service of others. Bypassing those of mere fame, this striking collection is a celebration of such persons as Gandhi, Rosa Parks, teachers, a thirteen-year-old child-labor crusader, firefighters, Cesar Chavez, a feisty nun, and:
. . . the valiant and the brave.
Those simple people known by
Two simple words: They gave.

Each portrait includes an expressive illustration and additional factual material, and an eloquent afterword tells of Mr. Lewis’s own childhood hero. This memorable book invites readers to explore the legacy of human generosity which lights the path for tomorrow’s heroes.
