Rick Wilson's The Enemies List
This week on The Enemies List, Rick is joined by author Brad Meltzer to discuss his children's book series "Ordinary People Change the World," marking its 10th anniversary. Together, they speak to the importance of providing young readers with real role models through stories of historical figures like Amelia Earhart, Abraham Lincoln, Mr. Rogers, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Meltzer emphasizes the significance of teaching children about selflessness and kindness, and how his books, which portray these figures in their childhood, make them more relatable and inspiring. The discussion also touches on the series' response to cultural and political contexts, highlighting the power of storytelling in shaping young minds.
Order "I am Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Ordinary People Change the World)" today.
