The Boy Who Dreamed Big
The Boy Who Dreamed Big is the story of how a foster child was inspired by his elementary school teacher to use his imagination to overcome his obstacles. Encouraged by his teacher and others, he learned that if he worked hard and believed in himself, his dreams would come true, and he could be whatever he wanted.
