"The Book of Heroes", "The Book of Heroines" review & giveaway (ends 11/9/16)

National Geographic books of heroes and heroinesMy 9 year old is an avid book reader. He will often finish books from the library within a day or two and seems to just consume them. When "The Book of Heroes" and "The Book of Heroines" showed up at our door, I knew he would love them! I showed them to him when he got home from school and I don't think he set those books down for the rest of the day.

He took them to his brother's soccer game that night, and to school the next morning. Suddenly I was hearing random facts about amazing people while he read through the books. Basically, they were a hit here! I got to explain to my son what a heroine is, and it gave him the opportunity to realize that heroes and heroines can be anyone, from a kid, to a dog, to a woman or man. These aren't people with super powers, just people who did amazing things.

I love that they are published by National Geographic, so I know the books are well-written and factual. "The Book of Heroes" and "The Book of Heroines" are wonderful for kids from ages 8-12, and are a great resource for kids to learn about many people in an easy-to-read format. All-in-all I was very impressed with the quality of these books and my son loves them. I'm excited to add them to our home library to be used for many years to come. I also love that it encourages kids to read about women who changed the world through their heroic actions...sometime women don't get nearly as much credit as they should.
