All Time Hero
by Susan Bangert-Wood
Illustrated by Jack Foster
In All Time Hero, by Susan Bangert-Wood, a class of young students research and recite reports on their heroes/heroines. Once Mrs. Jett, their teacher, explains what to do, each student reports on a number of different kinds of heroes – from fairies, to doctors, parents and Captain Combat!
I love how each student is very different in personality – some very nervous about speaking in front of the class, others exuberant, and others somewhere in between. It’s adorable that most of them choose to dress up like their heroes! Seeing the various kinds of people the kids consider to be their heroes is also fascinating. The last student’s presentation is the “all time hero.”
Jack Foster’s illustrations are bright and beautiful – they bring a lot of fun to the story.
All Time Hero is a great book for kids to learn about different kinds of heroes and heroines. Children also learn language and grammar concepts, and about ways to do research and homework projects.
Please note: I reviewed a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
