Every Hero Has A Story is wonderful. Author Mark Binder weaves together skillful and engaging retellings of traditional stories in a larger story of a lost prince and princess. The book begins with a royal brother and sister becoming lost in a storm and finding their way to a gathering of strangers telling tales to keep out the cold. From there the reader is treated to world folktales, original stories and engaging imagery. I keep imagining a parent or grandparent reading this with a child they love.
Binder's narrative is warm and welcoming. Each of the traditional stories has a gentle message but nothing heavy-handed. The connecting narrative (the prince and princess listening to the stories and the tellers themselves) is interesting, compelling and believable. I kept wanting to know what happened next and I was never disappointed.
What's more, Binder uses a wide array of characters so young readers of every nationality will find themselves in the story. They can imagine themselves as the hero and heroine without missing a beat.
This book will encourage families to share stories together. It will encourage young readers to tell their own stories and to listen to others. And it will help everyone who reads it to be the hero of their own story and to tell that story with joy.
