Description of this Book

In this kids' biography, discover the inspiring life story of Mohandas Gandhi, who successfully used his teachings of non-violence to win his country's freedom. Mohandas Gandhi was born at a time when his home country was choked under the oppression of British rule. Although many thought that violence was the only way to fight this injustice, Gandhi successfully used his teachings of non-violence and civil disobedience to win his country's freedom -- and create a philosophy of peace and equality. Called Mahatma, or great soul, by his many followers, Gandhi's inspiring words and deeds still resonate worldwide today. This new biography series from DK goes beyond the basic facts to tell the true life stories of history's most interesting people. Full-color photographs and hand-drawn illustrations complement thoughtfully written, age-appropriate text to create an engaging book children will enjoy reading. Definition boxes, information sidebars, fun facts, maps, inspiring quotes, and other nonfiction text features add depth, and a handy reference section at the back makes this the one biography series every teacher and librarian will want to collect. Each book also includes an author's introduction letter, a glossary, and an index.
