- Easy to read by Debra on 4/16/2015
Ben Carson has such a casual, talking to you from across the table type of style when he is writing, that really makes you feel like you know him. His story is just incredible, too, so I was thrilled to find a book directed at kids. My little ones are 9 and 11, and this is perfect for them.
I love the message he gives. You have the power to change your life. Follow your dreams, work hard, and you can overcome all kinds of obstacles.
The book is written for kids, but I think it is a great title to read for anyone who is interested in getting a little more insight into just who Ben Carson is – especially as we head into 2016 Presidential Election season – without having to spend a lot of time. I’m going to have my teens all read it as well, as it is just an easy read, and won’t detract from their schoolwork.
