Something with huge literacy value and lots of heart is a little gem that Mr. Elliott discovered at the fair, Heroes for My Son, by Brad Meltzer. When I heard it brought him to tears (not a hard feat) I had to find it. This book could be titled Heroes for my Child. The virtues and talents of the heroes highlighted will inspire and excite my daughter, Madeline. Each hero has a photo and a list of antidotes and quotes - many of which need more research to truly understand this hero (another great reason to read Heroes). There are a few copies left on the shelf, but if we need more I can get them by Friday.
The book fair is open late on Thursday and will close on Friday at 1:00.
