Mini-Me is strong little lady.
She is determined and outspoken and incredibly bossy… but it’s been recently bothering us that her “leadership” skills are tending towards dictatorship.
In fairness, she’s grown up in a house where both parents are usually leading situations. She sees The Him in charge in the gym, throwing out instructions and routines. She sees Mammy in rehearsals, either calling out dance routines or directing the cast. She sees us in charge of events we run and so maybe, our “get up and do it” example to her has been misunderstood.
Of course I want her to be a leader, but leadership has to be earned. It doesn’t just happen over night.
So I found this book at just the right time.
My Book Heroes allows you to created personalized story books where the main themes are Leadership, Courage and Determination. You choose your own avatar for your child and can write your own dedication.
Their own dedication reads “We hope every child sees the hero in themselves and we promise to bring you beautiful stories that inspire all kids to be the best version of themselves.”
Mini-Me LOVES it. It goes through a lovely story where the main character has to help others solve problems. It promotes taking steps to solve problems, inspiring others, communicating clearly and having fun as the key to being a good leader.
It also shows how all of the characters have very different skills and talents and how their goal will only be achieved, if they all work together.
It’s nicely written, rhythmic and rhyming; and the illustrations are lovely. Mini-Me loves having it read to her and she loves that it has herself as the main character.
These are lovely books and are available on their website. It’s easy to use and delivery was quick. The quality of the book is lovely and it is fast becoming a favourite bedtime story here.
