3-2-1 action. Do you know the director of the classics including Jaws, Indiana Jones, and Jurrassic Park? Steven Spielburg. The Jewish boy got his first camera when he was 10. That was only the start of his career behind the scenes.

Epic

Thumbs up!

Have you ever heard of the movies Jaws, Indiana Jones, ET: Extra-Terrestrial, or Jurassic Park? They are all directed by Steven Spielberg, the most creative filmmaker ever. He was a Jewish boy who found his interest behind the camera at age ten, when he started making movies on his fatherโ€™s camera. This book shows how a person can become successful by following their dreams from a young age. If you like biographies then I recommend this book!
