Scholastic
The author of the highly-acclaimed FRIDA and DIZZY brings us a series of searing portraits of warriors who didn't use weapons, including Martin Luther King Jr., Sojourner Truth, Gandhi, and more.

Why is "hero" is a word so often reserved for warriors who fight with guns and weapons to defend their people? Renowed picture book biographer Jonah Winter writes of another kind of hero, a peaceful hero, who is willing to die for a cause, but never to kill for a cause. From the ultimate hero, Jesus of Nazareth, to the ordinary man who saved Rwanda, Paul Rusesabagina, Jonah Winter brings children a series of remarkable stories about the bravest people history has known. The searing text is illustrated with moving portraits from a brand new talent, Sean Addy.

Outstanding book that documents the lives of people who chose peaceful methods to change the world for the better. Multi-faith, mutli-cultural, this would be an excellent addition to any classroom library.
