DK Biography sets a new standard in children's paperback books, relying on bold photographs, energetic storytelling, and detailed sidebars and definition boxes to build an educational and entertaining series. These books are perfect for either the classroom or the living room. Each title features a celebrated leader who has impacted our world in a big way, from important politicians to inspiring civil rights leaders, great entertainers to groundbreaking artists. These men and women come from a diverse range of nationalities and generations, but all have played a crucial role in shaping our society. DK Biographies gain momentum from detail, delving into the small things -- childhood hobbies, little-known fears, hidden strengths -- that make a person great. Most importantly, they encourage young readers to be curious about the world and those who have influenced it.

Mohandas Gandhi was born at a time when his home country was choked under the oppression of British rule. Although many thought that violence was the only way to fight this injustice, Gandhi successfully used his teachings of nonviolence and civil disobedience to win his country's freedom -- and create a philosophy of peace and equality that endures to this day.

Supports the Common Core State Standards.
