Age range 5 to 9 50 Real Heroes for Boys teaches young boys everywhere that being a man only requires being yourself - but your best self. Bright, colourful portraits by over a dozen international artists accompany true stories of men who knew that character - things like integrity, kindness, empathy, courage, respect for women, and more - mixed with their own unique gifts - art, athletics, creativity, dance, music, curiosity, and more - could make the world a better place.

Readers will find Jackie Robinson, who used courage to break barriers in sports; Jim Henson, who used humour to uplift the lives of millions; Dav Pilkey, who used perseverance to push through dyslexia and become one of the word's most successful children's book authors; and many more! The book also includes dozens of stories of women like Marie Curie, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Jane Goodall, because boys can have women heroes too! Written by marriage and family therapist Christy Monson, 50 Real Heroes for Boys reminds boys everywhere what true masculinity is all about.

Reviews for 50 Real Heroes for Boys: True Stories of Courage, Integrity, Kindness, Empathy, Compassion, and More!

Good Morning. Here's hoping those of you who celebrate had a good Easter/Passover. I also hope that you and yours remain in good health...Last Monday I was unable to provide a weekly update, but am happy to let you know that last Wednesday, April 8, GRSM presented a webinar for the PhD Project, entitled: Navigating the Ph.D. Application Process, Part One. We are having the opportunity to work more closely with this organization, and to that end, will do a second webinar on October 21. So long for now, thanks for your support, and have a good week ahead. Sincerely, Don Named a Children's Finalist in the 2020 Maxy Awards.
