William Bennett and Michael Hague, the team that brought us the national bestseller "The Children's Book of Virtues, " have once again collaborated to create "The Children's Book of Heroes, " a beautifully illustrated celebration of heroic deeds, both real and fictional, that will delight and inspire millions of young children and their parents.
"We all need a hero or two to help us stand fast and think right," says William J. Bennett, author of "The Book of Virtues, " the #1 bestseller that millions of American families turn to for moral inspiration. With excerpts chosen for young children, this new treasury presents splendid tales of the valor and indomitable spirit that are a lasting testament to our cherished values.
Jackie Robinson stands fast on the playing field -- and his strength of character inspires a nation. David slays Goliath -- and his faith and bravery give hope to underdogs everywhere. A little boy goes in search of an angel -- and finds one who guards him day and night: his own mother. From Abraham Lincoln and Mother Teresa to warriors on the battlefield, real moms and dads, and even young girls and boys, here are worthy and heroic figures all kids can look up to and emulate.
"The Children's Book of Heroes" is a celebration of the endurance, sacrifice, courage, and compassion that characterize truly heroic deeds.
