Editorial Reviews

Review

Everyday Heroes tells the moving stories of twenty real-life men and women who have faced--and overcome--serious challenges in their lives. The people in the book are not the media-created "heroes" of our sports or entertainment worlds. They are ordinary people who can be seen as heroes because they have had the courage to stand up to life's difficulties. The multicultural stories and accompanying photographs (there are five or six photos of each subject) inspire students to take charge of their lives and to do their best. --From the Publisher

Format: Paperback
The real life stories in this book all deal with the adversities of everyday life, growing up, going to school, being a parent etc. It also shows how everyday people have jumped the high burdles in life that cripple many of us. For that reason these people are heroes. They are not celebrities or anyone you will read about in magazines or newspapers. They are just "normal people." But they've done extraordinary things.
An added bonus with this book is that it is real easy reading. The stories are at most 5 pages long per person. The writing style is simple, to the point but never losing it's spirituality. The editorial doesn't even try to glamourize the people mentioned. It simply shows that life is hard - but the will of the human spirit is even harder.
This book is an excellent motivator! As corny as this may sound, it makes you say to yourself the words, "I can." It makes you realize that we all have the potential to be heroes to ourselves and to people around us.

Beware that the book you get is NOT the one described!!! The Table of Contents shown in "Click to Look Inside" lists 20 stories. The version received has only 13!! Under "Product Details" it says "169 pages" and publication date 1996. This ABBREVIATED version is 148 pages, published 2010.
