Back of Book:
What would you do if you saw someone who was hurt? For her birthday, Emma has one single wish. She wants to help people. However, she is a little doubtful when her mother tells her she can be a hero. “But a hero needs superpowers! the girl said.” Yet, when her cousin is in danger, she has to make a choice. Will Emma be able to overcome her fears and save him? The series “The Incredible Ordinary Hero or The Brave Bystander” empowers children to step up to face various daily incidents. By following Emma’s actions, children will also become familiar with first aid measures in different situations.
I was thrilled to receive a copy of this book from Aida Rascanu in exchange for an honest review. This is the kind of story that I love sharing with my students. It is a fantastic look at how children can make a difference and help others. The story follows Emma, a young girl whose birthday wish is to take care of people. When her cousin Danny gets burned it gives her the opportunity to help him. I love this simple but important message to children. The back of the book has excellent first aid information about how to treat burns. My students loved this book and asked to hear it again. The illustrations are bright and colorful. I hope that this turns into a series. A great story to share with all young children.
