Grammy-nominated, Pennsylvania-based singer/songwriter Jonathan Sprout dabbled in mainstream contemporary folk and rock music before shifting his focus to childrenâ€™s music. Armed with a psychology degree from Bucknell University, Sprout eventually traded in the bars and ski resorts of his early twenties for elementary school classrooms, where he began to build a successful career. In the mid-'90s he began work on his popular American Heroes series, which chronicles the lives of American historyâ€™s most notable figures such as Pocahontas, Thomas Jefferson, Neil Armstrong, and Susan B. Anthony. The first installment arrived in 1996, followed by More American Heroes in 2000 and American Heroes #3 in 2008. ~ James Christopher MongerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
