Synopsis

The Life Heroic by Elizabeth Svoboda

Heroes are superhuman. Or, at least, it's easy to assume that when you read ripped-from-the-news stories of derring-do. But in reality, almost anyone who's motivated can be a hero, and the heroes who make the biggest impact aren't always the ones who make headlines. This approachable, research-backed guide will equip kids with the tools they need to become everyday heroes. Along the way, you'll hear from real heroes living out the truth of psychologist Phil Zimbardo's words: Most heroes are ordinary. It's the act of heroism that's extraordinary.
