All Time Hero
All time HEro (I don’t know why the E is capitalized) is about a class of kids who learn about what it means to be a hero and get to do presentations about their own favorite heroes.
The classroom setting and characters will seem familiar to most kids. As a teacher myself, I appreciate the realistic way Mrs. Jett talks and interacts with her class, and all the kids seem like some I’ve met.
Kids up to eleven years old will enjoy this book and learn about some famous people. Maybe some of them will even be inspired to become heroes or heroines themselves. Spoiler alert; the book includes some religious content.
Jack Foster’s illustrations are cheerful and fun.
Susan Bangert-Wood has done an excellent job writing this book, which is both educational and fun to read.
