A book dedicated for school-aged children just came out earlier this spring.
Natural State Notables features 21 people from Arkansas who became famous.
They include U.S. president Bill Clinton, Walmart creator Sam Walton, as well as a woman who saved Arkansas Children’s Hospital from closing during the Great Depression.
Author Steven Teske said he was inspired to write something for kids.
“We really need a book for children that tells them about people in Arkansas. Something that a 4th grade levels. Something that can be used in classrooms.”
