Help Kids Discover Their Own Inner Hero

We often teach children that heroes are famous because of something they did, but it’s just as important to teach them that heroes are remembered for who they are. In Be Your Own Hero, Lisa King reveals what it takes to be a real-life hero. And it has a whole lot more to do with character and kindness than anything else! Being a hero takes having the courage to believe in yourself, overcome obstacles, and make the world a better – and brighter – place for everyone around you. And the good news is, we all can do that!

It’s Hero Week at school, and Quinn Wilson can hardly contain her excitement! Each day, her class will meet a real-life hero, and on Friday they get to dress up as their favorite hero from the past or present. Every other kid in the class knows who they want to be, except for Quinn! There are so many heroes she looks up to! How can she choose just one?

But when Quinn’s teacher, Mr. Finley, teaches the class some important truths about heroes, Quinn discovers something unexpected. In her search to find a hero in someone else, she actually finds the hero in herself!

This book sends so many wonderful messages to children! I have an 8 year old and a 6 year old. One of my sons struggles in school and often says he feels like a failure. Well, after reading about how Thomas Edison failed many times before inventing the light bulb, a light bulb went off in his head! He said, “that is why it is important to try again and again.” Their favorite part was at the end when they got to see who the classmates became when they grew up. I wish every child could have this book so they too can find their “inner hero”!

Every School Counselor needs this book! Just read this to a group of 5th grade students as we prepare for career day. I was happy to find that It was filled with positive quotes and many ideas to use in the classroom. The kids loved it and will share every year! Thanks for writing this helpful and inspiring book!!!
