We should never forget the people who shaped the world we live in, and 30 People Who Changed The World highlights thirty individuals in engaging, kid-friendly "nonfiction minute"s.

What do Julius Caesar, Rosa Parks, and Vincent van Gogh all have in common? They're all fascinating figures who shaped our world! Learn about these and so many more historical VIPs in 30 People Who Changed the World, brought to you by today's award-winning and best-known children's authors.

In this collection of 30 essays, each historical figure has a short piece -- called a "nonfiction minute" -- dedicated just to them. Learn how African-American singer Marian Anderson sang her way to the White House, and how an indentured servant named Juan de Pareja became an artist. Read all about Albert Einstein's theory of relativity -- yes, it can be explained in a minute! These nonfiction "appetizers" are quick and easy-to-read, and will have children begging to know more about the world around them.

Authors contributing nonfiction minutes to this collection are Jan Adkins, Sarah Albee, Vicki Cobb, Jan Greenberg, Cheryl Harness, Kerrie Logan Hollihan, Carla Killough McClafferty, Roxie Munro, Amy Nathan, Doreen Rappaport, Andrea Warren, and Jim Whiting. With an introduction by Jean Reynolds.
