Even More Fantastic Failures: True Stories of People Who Changed the World by Falling Down First

Your version and your vision of success may look like failure to many in the world. But what's wildly popular can sometimes lead  you away from who you truly are, rather than toward your authentic self." There is a lot of pressure in today’s society for kids to  succeed, but failing is a part of learning how to be a successful person. In his teaching career, Luke Reynolds saw the stress and  anxiety his students suffered, whether it was over grades, fitting in, or simply getting things right the first time. Even More  Fantastic Failures is a second installment in Reynolds's personal campaign to show kids it's ok to fall down or make mistakes,  just so long as you try, try again!

Even More Fantastic Failures once again shows students that their mistakes and failures do not define their whole lives but help  them grow into their potential. Kids will read about a host of inspiring, courageous, and diverse people who have  accomplished—or still are accomplishing—big things to make this world a better place. Reynolds explores the many ways well-known  people have failed both before and after succeeding, and kids will come to understand that failure is a large component  of success. A wide-range of stories from Greta Thunberg, Barack Obama, Nick Foles, Emma Gonzalez, Beyoncé, Ryan Coogler,  John Cena, Socrates, and even the Jamaican national women's soccer team, prove that the greatest mistakes and flops can turn  into something amazing. Intermixed throughout the fun profiles, Reynolds spotlights great inventions and scientific discoveries,  powerful events, and the people who started them in both sidebars and Flop Files. A new feature called "Off the Page and On  the Screen" showcases failures and success in the stories presented in literature and film. Reynolds's engaging, youthful voice  pulls kids into each anecdote much in the same way best-selling Girls Who Rocked the World and Boys Who Rocked the World do,  making the teaching moments feel more like a friend just retelling a story. And again each profile is followed up with advice on  how to come back from your own flops and move forward to succeed.
