Description
Illustrated in color with photos and drawings throughout, this engaging biography for readers 7 to 9 presents the life of Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi, from his time as a student in London to his work for equality in South Africa and India, and describes his methods of peaceful—though not passive—resistance to injustice. Throughout the book, activities inspired by Gandhi's values and beliefs, and the words of Gandhi himself, illuminate how to achieve goals through persistence and persuasion rather than through violence and fighting.

"From the Spiritual Biographies for Young Readers series, this well-designed book introduces Mahatma Gandhi with simplicity and dignity. While the discussion provides information about his life, beliefs, and achievements, it also challenges children to reflect on aspects of his philosophy and activism in a more personal way. [Maura] Shaw asks them to consider how Gandhi's beliefs can be applied to their own lives, such as helping others by giving away what an individual can no longer use. The illustrations include colorful paintings and drawings as well as many photographs. A detailed time line and a glossary are appended."—Booklist
