The Hero Book is a highly interactive book that helps kids realize that heroes come in many shapes and sizes, and they may not always be celebrities or sports stars. The book has many places for children to fill in the blanks, deciding who in their world is worthy of being called a hero.
The educational theme is mainly related to social conscience and the ability to discern that “heroes” come in many forms.

Read with 7-year-old child.
Buy. I would buy this book in addition to The Giving Book just to have it as a reference after the child has filled it in initially.
This book was cool! I learned that I have a lot of heroes around where I live.
This book is interactive and takes the child on a journey. It is not as long as The Giving Book and not quite as in depth, but it would still be a great addition to a child’s library.
The book allows children to see that all types of people are heroes and helps children, through engaging illustrations and questions, identify who the heroes are in their lives.
The only con would be that once the child fills out the book, he/she will probably not read it again. It seems like a one-time participatory book.
