Young or old, every human being has the capacity to do amazing things and to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Written in poetic verse, What It Takes to Be a Hero explores the challenges and joys of being a hero to ourselves and to others. Author and educator Kelly Sipe believes that children are innately born with a belief in the power of the impossible. As children grow older and begin to face life's challenges, they too often lose this perception. What It Takes to Be a Hero reminds children that their voices are strong, their hands are big, and the choices they make are powerful eugh to make a difference in the lives of those around them. Young or old, big or small, it matters t very much at all. There's need to look far for a bright hero star. It's there from the start, a place in your heart. You have the power to be a hero to the people you kw or to new ones you meet ... At times, being a hero can be quiet. It's being observant and ticing what someone needs before they ask for help. Just be present and you will see, what a gift you can be.
