    1. This was such a powerful book I don t even think I know where to begin to I ll discuss it in sections Artwork The artwork was beautiful and rich in color I never really took into consideration the idea of the artist using warm colors as the backdrop of this story, but it worked so well I even appreciated the exaggeration of Ghandi on the cover Eliopoulos stays with the concept idea of keeping Ghandi small as the character states that in the beginning of the book Overall, the artwork was amazing [...]

    2. I love the Ordinary People Change World biographical picture book series from Brad Meltzer Positive and inspiring for preschoolers Christopher Eliopoulos cute illustrations just add another layer of appeal As the series progresses, the books boast text With Gandhi s story, having to talk about his time in two countries fighting social and racial injustice and his philosophy of Satyagraha Truth Force , it allows readers to have a bigger scope of his contribution.

I continue to adore this series and everything that it stands for great illustrations, a perfectly organized biography of a person who changed the world, and an underlying message that empowers the readers For Gandhi s biography, Meltzer focuses on the truth brigade, ultimately Gandhi s use of seeking a voice for the masses and his quiet power It showcases the mighty ness of such a small and gentle man, who occasionally did raise his voice and that he wasn t perfect, but he sought to raise every [...]

    4. I ve read a few Children s Non Fiction books on this particular gentleman, and while most specifically focus on his AMAZING walk to the sea peaceful salt protestad up on it , this one presented a well rounded picture of his life and times, yet kept it accessible for the target audience I mean, yeshe was a man who sought peace over violence, but did you know that as a boy, we studied in London Did you know his course of study was the Law Did you know that he actually took a case to trial though [...]

    5. Gandhi himself narrates this picture book biography, spanning his childhood through the Salt March in 1930 Efforts are made to explain what personal obstacles Gandhi overcame to become a leader I like that in explaining satyagraha, he is shown to occasionally lose his temper even this great man who made peaceful non violence his most important idea The book aspires to inspire, and succeeds The digital illustrations are full of life, color and appealing comic book elements, such as panels and spe [...]

    6. In I am Gandhi, we learn Gandhi was afraid of snakes, not good at sports and ran home so people wouldn t make fun of him Even though he read lots of books, he wasn t good at school The book goes on to tell about all the social injustices he experienced an Indian in South Africa One day he decided to do something about it He made his first speech and formed the Natal Indian Congress Most importantly, he came up with Satyagraha, outlining peaceful methods to changing the social injustices Written [...]

    10. I enjoyed the illustrations here as much as the text The text was informative and the illustrations are vibrant, in earth tones, and full of activity with Gandhi always in the forefront My only quibble is that in talking about the injustices suffered by Indians in South Africa there was no mention of the treatment of blacks.

    11. Another great book in this series Brad does a great job of making these historical characters seem real and up to date Kris art is amazing and I love gems in each book Love seeing Clark Kent in each book the number 42 I will buy each new book as they are published and so should you.
