Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Few people think of themselves as heroes or feel like heroes. Few believe that they have done anything heroic. Heroic acts always feel like the amazing things that somebody else does. Yet heroes-ordinary heroes, reluctant heroes-are all around us-in your school, in your neighborhood, likely even in your own house. Prolific writer Kendall Haven serves up twenty-five high adventure five-minute-read alouds to tempt the reading interest of boys and girls too. Each story is chosen for its risk and danger quotient to appeal especially to the adventure seekers in your library or classroom. Teachers and librarians will use these stories as sponge activities to fill in those extra minutes when waiting in line or when tasks are finished early. These stories will also be valuable as attention getters in story times, introductions to book talk sessions, and bridges to spark further reading. Suggestions for further readings are included.
