"I can't wait to share 10 Hidden Heroes with the kids in my life!" -Jennifer Garner, actress and producer
10 Hidden Heroes helps children develop counting skills while learning ways to make the world a better place. In this fun-filled and inspiring seek-and-find book, New York Times bestselling author and president of Save the Children Action Network, Mark K. Shriver highlights the various ways children and adults can be real-life heroes in their everyday lives. Little ones learn to count the individual heroes who shine a light on the importance of helping others whether it's through teaching, caring for animals, protecting the environment, or keeping others from harm. Adults who read along can help their children make connections to the unseen acts of compassion that occur in their very own neighborhoods. Illustrated with colorful drawings by Laura Watson, 10 Hidden Heroes proves that acts of kindness and generosity can be found all around us. We just need to know where to look. Join the search!

Bestselling author Shriver features everyday heroes in this countdown seek-and-find book. Spare rhymes describe actions of the average hero ("Eight Hidden Heroes find a way to shine/ working hard to save the Earth/ one good deed at a time"), inviting readers to look closely at Watson's busy pages, which are filled with bright, inclusive illustrations. The prompts are deliberately vague; with no professions named upfront (back matter includes a helpful key), readers can see for themselves the different ways in which people work with others. A pigtailed, sight-impaired child gives Braille lessons on a park bench; an adult construction worker and child build homes for people in need; a wheelchair-using child participates in a charity marathon. An educational, interactive read. Ages 3-8. (Mar.)Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, LLC Used with permission.
