What do Heroes Wear?
Ways I Can Make a Difference When I Grow Up – and Before
Not your typical “what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up” book, What Do Heroes Wear? explores some of the countless ways people can find purpose & make a difference by serving others unselfishly. Who has acted heroically on your behalf? A teacher? A caregiver? A family member?
This delightful book celebrates the courageous people of high character among us who deserve honor. Filled with the utterly beautiful oil painting illustrations of Jan Bower.
What do Heroes Wear? plants seeds of compassion and character in the hearts of both children and adults! Making a living is important, and making a name can be exciting, but nothing beats making a difference. By learning to think beyond merely earning a paycheck, any career can become a more meaningful adventure!
One day, you may wear a badge or a uniform, a surgeon’s mask or a tool belt, or even a clean apron or dirty jeans. But you can be a hero if you devote yourself to unselfish deeds for others. In this unique look at what being heroic really means, author Gary Bower and his wife artist Jan Bower will show you that being prepared for the big events of tomorrow comes from learning to be unselfish in the ordinary moments of today.
