About the Author: Heidi Poelman graduated from Wake Forest University with a master s degree in communication. In graduate school, she had a particular interest in studying marriage dynamics. She wanted to know why something as simple as a tone of voice, a type of greeting, a sincere compliment, or a phone call could so greatly impact the feelings between two partners. This curiosity moved her to write The Two-Minute Marriage Project: Simple Secrets for Staying in Love, in which she was able to more fully explore the significance of seemingly simple thoughts, words, and deeds. Heidi lives in Utah with her husband, with whom she has three children.

My Review: This was an adorable little board book about people that our kids should know about!! I do think that although this is a board book the content is better suited to older kids that are in 1st to 2nd grade.  I think that it would get younger kids interested in learning about these people.  And maybe start thinking about how they to can be courageous!
