You've met Dustin Hoffman's remarkable Rain Man character Raymond Babbit; now meet the real Rain Man, Kim Peek, presented through the eyes of his father and constant companion, Fran Peek.

Kim Peek, the one-of-a-kind "megasavant" who inspired the Academy Award-winning motion picture, is even more fascinating and gifted than his on-screen counterpart. Following the film's release, Kim emerged from a world of isolation to become a warm, outgoing, humorous and brilliant emissary for those with special needs. Together with his father, Fran, Kim traveled around the country and the world spreading his message of diversity, tolerance and character to school and adult groups and demonstrating his astonishing memory abilities until his untimely death in 2009. 

Share this inspiring story with students to promote character education in classrooms and at home.
