How It All Began

We started making these books for our own children. We wanted to give them better heroes to look up to. Along the way, we learned one thing: We’re not alone. Millions of parents and grandparents wanted the same thing. And so began our dream of helping you build a library of real heroes for your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews. Today, the Ordinary People Change the World series is one of the most successful children’s series in the last decade, letting millions of kids unlock their own potential.
