The story of Dr. Tetsu Nakamura of Japan, recipient of the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Peace and International Understanding in 2013.
"The Ramon Magsaysay Award, Asia’s premier prize and highest honor, celebrates greatness of spirit and transformative leadership in Asia. In the past five decades, the award has been bestowed on over three hundred outstanding men, women and organizations whose selfless service has offered their societies, Asia, and the world successful solutions to some of the most intractable problems of human development." - rmaward.asia
ALEXINE: Though seemingly profound, this inspiring series is perfect for children and the entire family. Adriana has had some titles since she was four, they make every reader - child or adult- believe that anyone can make the world a better place. I recommend getting all 17 titles in this series!
