I love using picture books in the classroom to teach social emotional skills and my class loved reading Be Your Own Hero by Lisa King! Thank you to @nationalcenterforyouthissues for sharing this book with me!
Be Your Own Hero is about a girl named Quinn who gets to dress up in class as her favorite hero past or present. Leading up to the dress up day her teacher introduces the class to different heroes like Rosa Parks and Albert Einstein and teaches them positive lessons about what heroes do. My favorite part is when he shared with his class “Inside every one of you is a hero waiting to happen.” Such a positive book with an inspiring message!
