Ethan loved to bounce on his pogo stick and he was also a trivia nut. He loved to read, so he checked out every book in the library on pogo sticks. One day he found out about Boyd "Boing" Bower who traveled across the U.S. using a pogo stick. Boyd immediately became Ethan's hero. Ethan determined to bring fame to Boyd's achievement. Read the book to learn how Ethan discovered that Real Heroes Don't Wear Capes.
You can learn about heroes through books found in the library. One book which is not too hard to read is: Freedom Walkers: The Story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Another book, The Children's Book of Heroes, edited by William J. Bennett, comprises of real and fictional heroic deeds, and is a delight to read. It is illustrated on every page, and that enhances the characteristics of each hero portrayed.
