The Little Book of Heroes

Right, I don’t like the charity Help for Heroes and have my own reasons for that BUT if you do like them and want to help please look at this little gem they have got going

The Little Book of Heroes

Children from all 43 Services Children’s Education (SCE) schools based around the world entered a creative writing competition in January of this year organised by Grosvenor House Publishing Ltd (GHP). The theme was ‘My Hero’ and the winning entries have now been published in a paperback book called ‘The Little Book of Heroes’.

The Sun newspaper is proudly supporting The Little Book of Heroes and will be featuring some of the stories and poems within their paper.

The ages of the authors range from 5 years to mid-teens. As you would expect, many of the older students wrote about family members who are either serving on the frontline or have served their country in the past. The younger children had a slightly different take on the whole ‘Hero’ theme and focused on superheroes or their family members who played a key role in their life. The Little Book of Heroes can be enjoyed by both children and adults who won’t fail to be both moved and entertained by the content.

Simon Weston OBE has enthusiastically endorsed this book: “In this Little Book of Heroes we can read what the children of our brave soldiers think about heroism and who they have as their own heroes. Some of the stories and poems will make you laugh and some of them will make you cry. One thing is certain, all of the stories and poems will bring home to us the poignancy of having a parent ‘taken away’ to go and do their duty.”

This delightful Little Book retails for just £2.99 and is available from Morrisons and W.H. Smith stores nationwide and can also be ordered online here. 75p from each sale is going to Help for Heroes.
