the hero book: learning lessons from the people you admire

Summary:
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.
Educational Themes:
The educational theme is mainly related to social conscience and the ability to discern that “heroes” come in many forms.
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
8 to 10
Recommended Age To Read Together:
6 to 12
Age of child:
Read with 7-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
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.
Little Kid Reaction
This book was cool! I learned that I have a lot of heroes around where I live.
Big Kid Reaction
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.
Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.
