Summary What do King Tut, Galileo, Crazy Horse, Bruce Lee, Chico Mendes, Elvis Presley, Bill Gates, Tiger Woods, and the Dalai Lama all have in common? They each left their mark on the world in a big way-and all were boys or young men when they did! Did you know that King Tut was one of the youngest pharaohs ever to rule Ancient Egypt? If that sounds like a huge responsibility in itself, imagine that he was able to restore order, peace, and prosperity to the people after years of chaos! Have you ever heard about Chico Mendes? In 1959 Brazil, 15-year-old Chico protested against the rubber barons who were destroying the Amazonian rain forest. Winning many important victories using non-violent methods, Chico became an inspiration to people around the world! This exciting and informative book introduces listeners to the most fascinating boy heroes of all time and includes stories about 30 amazing individuals. Boys Who Rocked the World is the perfect audiobook to encourage kids to strive for excellence.
