Our children are looking for heroes. Where will they find them? In the media? In sports? In politics? Among their peers?
They need heroes for many reasons: so that they can learn from them, emulate them, and be encouraged by their character qualities, as well as their adventures.
While raising her own children, Amanda noticed that they didn’t have the same kinds of heroes she had as a child. Her children's heroes came in plastic packages from the store, wearing different colored capes. They were not connected with anyone who had lived a life of real adventure and challenges. That bothered her, so she set out to help them discover “real” heroes.
She discovered several books from long ago that taught about all kinds of heroes--heroes of Christianity, heroes of inventions, heroes of chivalry, and heroes from America’s history.
This new series, Heroes for Today, is based on these stories of real heroes throughout history, perfect for today's students. Unlike her unit studies, these collections simply tell the captivating tales of history's heroes in story format.
“The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.”
Start today, helping your children discover what "hero" really means!
