I have to be honest – after the events of the past few months, and especially the past week, I’ve been looking for some positivity to share with my daughter. She and I were huge Hillary fans, and she was so excited about the possibility of our first female president! So when the results came in, I was thankful that MomsMeet had sent us these great National Geographic books that highlight so many guys and gals who have made a difference in our world!
I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.
We were sent The Book of Heroes and The Book of Heroines from National Geographic Kids. We concentrated on The Book of Heroines, because as a quiet mother to a quiet girl I am always trying to find role models for her that encourage her to challenge herself. We even found Hillary Clinton in there! After the election, we talked about how she is still a hero. It also had people like Mother Theresa and Marie Curie, and even celebrities like Tina Fey and Emma Watson.
These books are great conversation starters. We talked about what makes someone a hero, and the differences between being famous and being a hero. We also talked about how different people may have different values that they see as heroic. I really enjoyed talking to her about the traits she saw as heroic! Her heroes are compassionate, brave, inspiring, and don’t give up!
One of my lucky readers will get to win this same set (Book of Heroes and Book of Heroines)! Each book retails for $14,99, and they are great for 8-12 year olds.
