Elementary Collection: Biographies

Biographies open windows into the lives of people who have made an impact on the world. Some of the people featured in this audio story collection have achieved excellence in sports, business, politics, science, or technology. Others stand out for their exceptional public service or desire to help those in need. Still others have sparked social change through activism or showed strength in the face of enormous challenges. Their stories illuminate different times and places, offering new perspectives to listeners. They reveal the many paths one might take, and the choices one might make, to achieve success. And they suggest that the qualities needed to accomplish great things – curiosity, creativity, passion, persistence – reside in all of us. Listen to learn about individuals representing many areas of human life whose stories will amaze, instruct, and inspire.
