Heroes Who Help Us From Around the World (Paperback)

£8.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Nurture a child's natural curiosity with this quirky book about the jobs people do!



Think of a person who does a heroic job. Perhaps you're thinking of a firefighter who puts out burning buildings, or a doctor who makes sick people better? These people are definitely heroes, but our world is full of lots of amazing people who's job it is to help us. From park rangers to police officers and from librarians to lifeguards, the heroes who help us are everywhere!



Readers will love spotting the similarities and differences between the people and places that are familiar and those that are new to them. It opens up opportunities for talking about interesting careers, diversity and positive role models and will inspire them to become 'everyday heroes' through kindness and compassion.



Our heroes in action are beautifully illustrated and accompanied by easy-to-read text, which is great for sharing with a child as they learn to read. It is perfect for more confident readers who can read alone.



A truly inclusive and positive book, Heroes Who Help Us represents the diversity of people on our planet and celebrates Earth's infinite varieties of race, gender, ethnicity and abilities. From Botswana to Brazil and from Nepal to New Zealand, many countries from the six inhabited continents are included, and every child reading this book should be able to find themselves represented in some way.



Perfect for children aged 5+ who are learning about values and citizenship and for curious minds eager to find out a little more about the amazing people in our world.

Liz Gogerly is a writer and editor of children's information books and a former teacher. She has worked on a wide variety of books and has a specialist knowledge of history and biographies. Ryan Wheatcroft was born and raised in Sheffield, where he still lives on the outskirts of the city. He spent his childhood making books in old ring binders with borrowed fax machine paper, which began his love for telling stories with words and pictures. The interest in storytelling continued to grow and driven by his passion for illustration and design (especially from the early and middle parts of the last century) he went on to study illustration at the University of Lincoln. Since graduating in 2014 he has worked as an illustrator and he now spends most of his time making pictures for books and magazines.
