A guide to emotional intelligence for young people, for every parent and teacher who wants their children to live up to their natural promise.
No dreamer is ever too small. No dream is ever too big. Heroes are just ordinary people on amazing journeys. Some are born with more talent than others, but in the end it's not talent alone that makes you succeed. It's also about following your heart and having a go.
Finding Heroes is not about the quest for greatness or stardom, but about the journey to self-discovery. Goals are realistic, promoting resilience and practical ways to fulfil personal potential through stories of famous and ordinary people (and kids) who have done amazing things. It's also a step-by-step guide to living the life you want, rather than trying to live up to other's expectations.
Taking inspiration from heroes as diverse as Ian Thorpe, Louise Sauvage, and Frodo from The Lord of the Rings, Anne Frank, Christopher Reeve, and Simba from The Lion King, Finding Heroes shows how to find the right path to good self-esteem before moving into the tumultuous teenage years.
Be inspired by heroes' stories from real life and from movies. Their experiences can change the way you look at life.
