Heroes. We all need them, we all love them — and the message of new books by a bestselling thriller writer is that each of us can be a hero.

Brad Meltzer is already author of the books “Heroes For My Son” and “Heroes For My Daughter,” but those books are aimed at parents, adults. His two newest books are the first in a series of books for kids.

“I am Abraham Lincoln” and “I am Amelia Earhart” are Meltzer’s foray into children’s books, a genre he’d always longed to be in.

And his enthusiasm for these stories is infectious.

Two centuries after his birth — and nearly a century and a half since his death — we are still finding that there is much to learn about our sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln. Every year there is a fresh batch of books about one or another aspect of the Lincoln story.

Every few years, there is a major new biography — and this is that year. Noted Lincoln scholar Ronald White undertook meticulous research of letters, documents, photos, and the elusive Lincoln journal, for his book “A. Lincoln: A Biography.”
